Buddy is described as an active and lively kid that's skinny with big knobby knees and a mischief maker.


In Mallory and the Mystery Diary he wasn't reading at the proper reading level. Mr. Moser is his third grade reading teacher. Buddy says he hates flashcards almost as much as he hates Mr. Moser. Mallory Pike tutors him successfully by introducing him to comics books to make him a better reader. He moves from the lowest reading group to the middle reading book in his class.

He figures out that the moondust they ordered through the mail is a lie. He also had bought a stamp licker. He and the other do traveling salesmen show to earn money in Stacey's Choice.

In Maid Mary Anne he gets into fights over his participation in Mary Anne's sewing class. He goes overboard in proving his masculinity.

He was in Mallory's group when the BSC took their clients to Sudsy's Carnival in Kristy and the Mother's Day Surprise.
