Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0735815011, Hardcover)

When Jonah, refusing his Lord's request to spread the Word to the people in the corrupt city of Nineveh, heads for the high seas, the Lord summons up a terrible storm that threatens all aboard and sends Jonah into the watery depths where he is swallowed by a whale. Trapped for days in the belly of the whale, Jonah sees the error of his ways and is mercifully set free to fulfill his mission. The story of Jonah is an exciting tale of danger and adventure that offers children a direct and satisfying lesson in disobedience, punishment, forgiveness, and redemption. Bernadette Watt's illustrations, done in a gentle naif folk art style, exude warmth and childlike appeal, making this simple retelling of the Old Testament story accessible to a young audience.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:23:31 -0400)

Retells the biblical tale of a man swallowed by a whale for three days after refusing to obey God's command that he tell the people of Nineveh they must repent.
