Max would like to be a superhero so that he can protect his family from evil. All he needs is a Flying Avenger costume like the one he has seen in the toy store. Christmas is only one month away. He is sure to get one if he asks his parents. Suddenly, everything is topsy-turvy. Nothing is the same at home and Max doesn't understand what's wrong. Then he finds out that his Dad is out of work. Now that his family is POOR, what sort of Christmas will they have?

"A touching story... a good opportunity to think about the less fortunate people in our communities."
