Gordon Star

Written by Rebecca Patterson

Illustrated by Mary Rees

Gordon Star Synopsis

Gordon can see everyone else in his class getting gold stars for being good at something: Lucy has neat handwriting, Rachel is the best footballer, 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: they say he is rubbish. But the children all agree that Gordon is kind, cheerful and funny - and from now on, Mrs Tonks will give a star to someone who shows those qualities every day. It will be called 'The Gordon Star' - and the first person to get it is Gordon
