This is an absorbing retelling of the classic story from the Bible, enlivened with harmonious music and sound effects. The story is the familiar one: the prophet Jonah is swallowed by a whale when he refuses to warn the people of Nineveh about their wickedness, but he later relents and learns about the power of God. Performer Neil Innes' regal, British-accented baritone is pleasant and creates a sense of drama around the tale. A wonderful way for kids to be introduced to this important Bible story and common cultural allusion.

The narrator was awesome but my niece who I bought it for though they needed some better pictures. The story was to the point though. it was good overall.
Even though it's only 5min long, it has to be one of the best books with synchronized images on this website. On top of that, it's one of the most unique and entertaining stories from Gods word. Great find. Audible needs to produce books like this.
