God made Whale and gave him a home in the blue-deep waters of the sea, a family with whom he could play and splash, and a joyful song to sing. And then one day, when a wild storm raged above, God gave Whale a job to do. Whale"s faithful spirit fills the pages of this vibrant story and gives a new twist to the classic, well-loved biblical tale. Eileen Spinelli"s charming retelling of this familiar story will delight readers of all ages, as will Giuliano Ferri"s rich and vivid illustrations.
