Star and Blister are neighbors and great friends. She helps him repair a flat tire on his bike with duct tape. The tape comes in quite handy for repairing a few other things, including the sign that was falling off Coco the dog's doghouse. In the next chapter, Star tries her hand at painting. Everything she does is reminiscent of some famous artist and her sister keeps calling Star a copycat. Once again, duct tape comes to the rescue. In the third story, Blister and Star devise a plan to spend the night outside to watch for shooting stars. They finally give up and go to bed, but just before falling asleep they get a real treat.
