Publisher's Description

Oh sure, we'll all heard the story of Jonah and the Whale a hundred times. But have we heard it from the perspective of the whale who experienced that history-making event?

Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up! imagines how that great sea creature from the incident might tell his side of the story, helping kids ages 4 to 8 discover a creative way of learning about that guy who was supposed to go to Ninevah.

The "Parent Connection" feature will help moms and dads take the story further with scripture references and tips on how to talk with their children about what really happened. There's even a free online app to make this bright retelling even more animated and interactive.

Editorial Reviews

A classic Bible story retold from the whale’s perspective depicts its divine encounter as parallel to that of Jonah. A fresh, contemporary attitude infuses the narrative voice: upon hearing God’s instructions to swallow a human, the whale responds, "A human? But they live on land. Land creatures taste like dirt. Yeech...." The whale swims as far from God as he can, but his escape proves as unsuccessful as Jonah’s; soon Dr. Crab, with tongue depressor and mirror, diagnoses the whale’s stomachache: "You swallowed some guy." Jones, a graphic designer, offers full-bleed cartoons with flattened perspectives, bold outlines, marine colors, and characters with big round eyes. Schmidt, writer for The American Bible Challenge, stays true to the original story while also giving voice to God’s relationship with all creation, as when God explains Jonah’s mission of hope and tells the whale, "You are a part of that plan." This playful, feisty interpretation retains the tale’s key theological themes of mission, disobedience, prayer, and repentance. A "Parent Connection" endpage provides guidance for discussion. Ages 4–8.

    I'm sure you all remember the story of the famous whale right? No, not the one about the angry white whale, and no, not the one who swallows a puppet and a cricket. The other story, actually, the first story about a whale: The Story of Jonah! Imagine what it would be like if the whale was the one telling his side of the story!

    That's just what you get in a beautifully illustrated children's book, Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Johan in My Stomach and I Think I'm Going to Throw Up! by author Troy Schmidt and illustrator Cory Jones.

    The tale has been told millions of times, but people always talk about Jonah and what he went through, but what about the whale? He had some guy stuck in his stomach and I'm sure he didn't taste too good either and this book is his side of that famous story. This one is guaranteed to help your kids laugh and see that there are two sides to every story and one that will help them remember that important Bible story as well.

    There are lots of laughs inside that kids will really relate to. I mean if you're a whale do humans even taste good? What do they taste like? How do you get them out of your stomach? Just who does a whale go to see when he's got a human stuck inside him? Is there a whale doctor under the sea?

    This story shows just how important it is to follow God's commands and includes a Parent Connection on the final page to encourage a conversation with your children after you finish to dive into the book of Jonah in the Bible. There are some great questions to ask your children along with a fun activity to pretend what living inside a whale might be like.

    I received Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Johan in My Stomach and I Think I'm Going to Throw Up! by author Troy Schmidt compliments of B and H Publishing Group for Kids and Flyby Promotions for my honest review. I didn't receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review. This is such a great way to teach your children a lesson in obedience using the story of Johan from the Bible is a fun, creative way! Hands down this is a MUST HAVE in your children's library and well worth 5 out of 5 stars! I love it when you can find a product that drives home the biblical principles we want our kids to understand and would make a great book to incorporate into the children's ministry at your church as well. There are also more great titles to chose from such as the story of Noah and the story of Moses told through the eyes of the animals as well you can find through B and H Publishing Group! This book is perfect for kids age 4 and up!
