Jack Possum's peaceful life in the outback is turned upside down when his cousin invites him to the city
"I've been chased by a dog and harassed by a waiter.
The city is fun, but its dangers are greater!
The back of beyond is the place I love best.
Its a place where a possum can get a days rest!"
Jack the Possum loves to chew leaves and watch sunsets. His cousin, Jessie, loves adventure and fun. When Jack visits his cousin in town, he discovers that the hustle and bustle of the city is too hair-raising, and he decides that the quiet life is the life for him. He heads home, only to find he has a new neighbor!
