Gordon sees everyone else in his class getting gold stars for being good at something: Lucy has neat handwriting, Rachel is better at sports, Peter makes great clay figures. But all Gordon seems to do is make a mess and get into trouble for being silly. So when they are choosing teams for a quiz, no one wants Gordon. But as Mrs. Tonks points out, Gordon is kind, cheerful, and funny—and from now on, she will give a star to someone who shows those qualities every day. It will be called the "Gordon Star!"
