-Jonah is notable from the other prophetic books due to the focus of the book. While the other Prophetic books focus on the words of the prophet, Jonah focuses on the prophet himself.

While the other Prophetic books focus on the words of the prophet, Jonah focuses on the prophet himself. In the other books like Isaiah, there is hardly anything known about the author, the case is flipped with Jonah. We also see in Jonah 4:1-2 that Jonah gets angry that the people of Tarshish repented. Why? Because they were a city of Assyria, who was constantly fighting Israel. Had Tarshish been destroyed, Israel could have seen this as a victory
