The Book of Jonah was placed within Prophets because of mention of a prophet in 2 Kings. The story, however, contains no oracles, so it is unlike any work attributable to the historical prophets.

Fleeing Yahweh's demand that he hasten to Ninevah to chastise the Assyrians, Jonah sets sail for Spain. Rather than teleport Jonah to Ninevah, Yahweh tosses up a storm, then dispatches a whale to rescue Jonah. Finally reaching Ninevah, Jonah is dismayed when Yahweh forgives the repentant Assyrians. The message -- of a forgiving Yahweh -- is very different than the vengeful message of apocalyptic literature.
