Jonah and the Big Fish by Susan Collins Thoms


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.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
