The next instalment of the fantastic Aussie Kids series that has proved very popular so far, we are introduced to Mia, her sister Alice and their house guest Jim, who is visiting them at their home in Victor Harbor, South Australia.

Mia loves where she lives and is keen to show Jim around. So she comes up with a plan that involves her being the tour guide.

Together they explore what she loves about Victor Harbor, including the beach of Encounter Bay and the fairy penguins of Granite Island.
This is a lovely story about having a passion for where you live, and sharing it with others.
