Matt Braddock is a 7-year-old sitting charge of the BSC. He was born profoundly deaf and uses American Sign Language. He has an older sister, Haley Braddock.
NO a blackboard and a goose honking.
He is friends with the Pike boys. He gets some glory for finding Jake Kuhn after he goes missing from baseball practice. He attends the Valentine's Day Masquerade party. Matt participated in the Wiffle Ball Derby at the BSC Mini-Olympics.
He plays tom-toms in the kids' band the BSC organizes called "All the Children of the World" and can feel the beat. He attends Camp Mohawk and ends up in Logan's cabin because Logan and the counselor understand sign language.
Matt and Haley participate in the BSC pet show as official pet handlers and they end up winning the "Best Pet Handlers" prize. In Book 101, Matt dresses up as a baseball player for Halloween and goes trick-or-treating with Jake.
