David Michael is described as having dark curls. He is also allergic to chocolate.
His dad left the family when he was a baby. At the Thomases' old house, his bedroom was not much bigger than a closet.
David Michael attends Stoneybrook Elementary School where he is in the second grade.
Elizabeth & Watson briefly consider the idea of transferring him to Stoneybrook Academy, but decide to keep him at the elementary school because they have a theatre program.
Kristy is like a second mother to David Michael. He is a klutz & a champion whiner.
Watson taught him the crawl stroke so David Michael knows how to swim. He is not allowed to ride his bike farther than two blocks from his house.
David Michael plays for Kristy's Krushers and a catcher for the Krushers. Louie, the old collie dog the Thomases owned from even before he was born was described as his dog and best friend. He enjoys his new dog Shannon, although she is not the same as Louie. Kristy notes in #11 Kristy and the Snobs that David Michael would never forget Louie.
He owns a Polaroid camera. David Michael is supposed to brush his teeth every night, no exceptions.
In Kristy's Great Idea he befriends Jamie Newton because of Jamie Newton's interest in G.I Joe Action Figures. He used to like rodeos until he saw one himself. In book 11, he got a black eye falling down the basement stairs. He really likes vanilla cookies. He doesn't get along with Karen that well. He never remembered his father. Once, he and Karen were in the same second grade class. Kristy's first babysitting job was for David Michael.
