When a storm blows in, Jimmy dreads spending the afternoon indoors, but his grandfather knows exactly how to pass the time. He ventures into the cupboard and pulls out a dusty, old book-the journal of Jimmy's seafaring great-great-grandfather, James Earl Silas Tuckingham, who once traveled the world with a botanist.

As the storm rages outside, Grandfather and Jimmy journey into the past and relive James' adventures as he roamed the untamed oceans. On his travels, James discovers new species of plants, explores the Amazon, and defeats vicious pirates. At first, Jimmy is bored with the book, but as his ancestor James sails to exotic New Guinea and Guam, he and Grandfather share the thrill of James' voyages..

Set in the 1800s and filled with Janeen Mason's vivid illustrations, The World's Greatest Explorer encourages young readers to learn more about their family's history, botany, and world geography, especially the many places James visits on his journey.
