Synopsis

The Hard to Swallow Tale of Jonah and the Whale by Joyce Denham

The story of Jonah is full of ingredients that children love: a dangerous mission; a man on the run; danger at sea; an incredible whale rescue; and a grand finale about forgiveness. Amanda Hall and Joyce Denham give this classic tale their own special twist. The beautiful illustrations and dramatic story line make this a great read.

Reviews

Here is a special book, beautifully produced with softly coloured, charming illustrations.

About the Author

Joyce Denham is an experienced author of several books for children and adults, taking her inspiration from Celtic Christianity and the lives of the saints. Her lyrical style sings through in stories. Having had a career in teaching, Joyce now lives in Minneapolis and is the Associate Minister in Adult Education and Formation at her church. Amanda Hall is an award-winning international illustrator, noted for her stylish illustrations of folk tales and legends. With a lush and decorative style which demonstrates a love of colour, her children's books are often mythical and timeless. Amanda studied Graphic Art at what is now the Anglia Polytechnic University in Cambridge. Having travelled Amanda finds herself drawn to illustrating ethnic tales and legends in a style that uses watercolours and crayon to build layers of colour and texture.
