Tom and his school friends are excited to hear that a new pupil is the son of rock star Red Fox. Shortly after, they're devastated to learn that their small school is threatened with closure. To raise money to help the school, the students plan a soccer tournament. Narrator Geoff Leesley keeps the action going as the students gear up for their game. Leesley also conveys the children's emotions as they worry and then rejoice when they realize their efforts CAN help their school. In an interesting subplot, one of the boys helps thwart a kidnapping of the rocker's child. This energetic story illustrates how kids can effectively help themselves and others.
