PreS-Gr 2-This version of the Old Testament story of Jonah and his encounter with a "big fish" is written in simple verse: "That Nineveh's a horror show./Go preach to them, and let them know/Their wicked ways have got to go." The rhyme scheme is rough in spots but conveys the Scriptures faithfully and straightforwardly (e.g., using correctly "big fish" instead of "whale, etc). The colorful illustrations portray the action well, and they are large enough for a satisfying read-aloud. Libraries that need more Bible stories for this audience may want to include this one.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LAα(c) Copyright 2011.
