Product Description

Whale has a happy life. A home in the blue-deep waters of the sea, a family that splashes and twirls and plays in the waves, clouds of silvery fish to eat. What more could he need? But one day Whale sees a ship tossed on the waves by a storm, and hears God's command to save a drowning man. Whale is not sure what to do with the man Jonah, but he obeys God anyway.

    This is not really a retelling of the biblical story of Jonah and the big fish. Instead, it's a beautifully illustrated tale about a whale who relies upon God. He swallows Jonah because God tells him to - then learns to wait patiently to hear from God again. The ending is weak, and I have mixed feelings about children's books based on biblical stories that veer far from the original content, but if you're just looking for a sweet tale, this book will fit the bill.
