Even Fish Slappers Need a Second Chanceby Eric Metaxas
The people of Nineveh were a mean ol' sort. They "wouldn't do dishes," "they'd squirt the insides out of knishes," and worst of all, "they'd slap each other with big smelly fishes!" But God loved those Ninevites and wanted them to change, so he sent Jonah with a special message to save the day. Will the Ninevites listen to Jonah and obey God's wishes and stop slapping each other with fishes?
The laugh-out-loud illustrations will delight and encourage children as they discover that God is a God of second chances. Capture your child's attention and imagination with this funny, rhyming VeggieTales' spin-off from the story of Jonah found in the Bible.

This is an excellent book! I bought this book for my son when he was 4 and it's been a favorite ever since. He's now 7 and this is STILL one of his favorites. He laughs and laughs at the pictures. An excellent source of teaching manners and forgiving and the gospel story of Jonah. Definately a must have book.
