C’est la fin des vacances d’été et la rentrée des classes pour Franklin. Sa petite sœur est triste car elle va devoir jouer toute seule, mais Franklin est très content de retrouver ses copains et son maître, M. Hibou. Mais le jour de la rentrée, ce n’est pas M. Hibou qui viendra faire cours car il est remplacé, temporairement, par Mlle Koala. Avec ce nouveau professeur, les habitudes et les méthodes de travail changent et les élèves devront s’y habituer. Après des premiers contacts difficiles, Franklin et ses amis vont apprendre à mieux connaître leur nouvelle maîtresse et son pays d’origine, l’Australie. Les tensions finiront de s’apaiser lorsqu’ils se trouveront une passion commune : le football.
