David Michael Thomas
David Michael is described as having dark curls.
Kristy is like a second mother to David Michael since she would babysit him so much growing up.
In Kristy's Great Idea he befriends Jamie Newton because of Jamie'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 his stepsister Karen Brewer that well. He doesn't remember his father, who left when he was a baby. Once, he and Karen were in the same second grade class. Kristy's first babysitting job was for David Michael.
In Karen's Big Fight, Elizabeth & Watson consider the idea of transferring him to Stoneybrook Academy, and have him attend Karen's school for a day. They decide to keep him at his current elementary school because they have a theater program.
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.
