Here is a cheering story about him by Blair Braverman!
(I mean, this kid): "Fifth grade is a big year, and Gideon has big plans—to pet more dogs. 'There’s still tons more dogs left in Cedar Falls,' he says. 'I’d say maybe 50. I get to look out the window and say, Do I have that dog? That dog looks awesome.'”
Edited to add:
On April Fools Day, all the posts on his Twitter were Gideon's brother (who looks like Gideon with short hair) petting cats. I mean.
