Jonah and the Big Fish by Susan Collins Thoms

What happens when you disobey God? This lush edition of the classic biblical story captures Jonah's watery world in jewel-toned illustrations by Stoop, who paints her incredible images directly on wood planks, each chosen specifically for its unique character. Perfect for parents and children to share, this book makes a beautiful companion to All Creatures Great and Small (9781402785818) and Noah 's Ark (9781402785498), also illustrated by Stoop.
