Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Name Jonah in my Stomacn and I Think I'm Going to Throw Up!

Hey God, I've got some guy named Jonah in my Stomach and I think I'm going to Throw Up by Troy Schmidt has got to be the longest title ever for a book. This kids book is a fun look at a familiar Bible story. It's  the story of Jonah told from the whale's perspective.  

With fun, colorful pictures it'll be one that your children will enjoy looking at. The story though is a little off for me. There was just something about it that I didn't like all that much. I guess it's supposed to be a fun twist, but it fell flat to me.

It would be a fun glimpse into the whale's mind, just make sure to remind your child that it didn't really happen that way and that the story in the Bible is the way it actually took place. I think maybe that's what bothered me.
 From the back cover:
Oh sure, you've heard the story of Jonah a hundred times, but have you ever heard of from the perspective of someone who witnessed this history making event?
The whale!
This light-hearted series puts a fresh spin on our favorite Bible stories, told with humor and attitude, while remembering exactly what the original story was all about.
A lesson in obedience.
