Jonah’s Whale by by Eileen Spinelli

Have you ever thought about Jonah’s story from the perspective of a big fish? Eileen Spinelli has. With poetic text and luminous deep-sea illustrations beautifully rendered in watercolor and colored pencil by Giuliano Ferri, Jonah’s Whale is a refreshing take on a story many know by heart. While it understandably minimizes the terror Jonah must have felt, this book provides food for thought. It would be an excellent addition to your church library or home bookshelf and a fitting complement to a Sunday school lesson. (Eerdmans)
