Description - The Book Of Jonah by Peter Spier

Two-time Caldecott illustrator Peter Spier's The Book of Jonah is back in print!

One of the best-loved stories in both the Old Testament and the Koran is rendered poignantly and powerfully by two-time Caldecott illustrator Peter Spier.

In a tale full of action, adventure, and strife, Jonah is asked by God to tell the people of Nineveh to mend their wicked ways. Fleeing from this enormous task, Jonah sets sail and is thrown overboard and swallowed by a great fish. What follows is Jonah's journey to acceptance of God's love and grace.

A reference section at the end of the book shares historical and geographical notes about the story, including details about what kind of ship Jonah might have sailed on and a fascinating parallel between the ancient city of Nineveh and its location in present day Iraq.
