To learn more about Australia's continent and country, Little James and Susie set out for the southern hemisphere. After being transported to the heart of Sydney by the magic snow globe, James and Susie get to see the Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, two of the city's most iconic attractions. In the Great Barrier Reef, they encounter a variety of marine creatures while snorkeling. They also go to the Australian zoo, where they get to pet Kangaroos and hold a koala for a while. A meat pie is also on the menu for those who visit. Last but not least, they make a stop at Ayers Rock (commonly known as Uluru), a notable natural monument.

Janine lived overseas for several years and always appreciated the fun differences between her home country, the U.S., and the rest of the world. She created the Little James' Big Adventures series to encourage a global mindset in young children and cultivate an appreciation for other cultures.
