A fifth grade boy. Doodle has just moved to California with his mom and imaginary talking goat, Valencia. Doodle is the son of a working immigrant mother from Mexico and father who was unable to immigrate to the United States and still lives in Mexico.
Doodle's imaginary goat. Valencia speaks English, Spanish, and . . . Goat.
Reno, like the city in Nevada, is Doodle's fifth grade neighbor who likes to dress up and sometimes in dresses.
The evil blood pumpkin growing gardner of the quadraplex that will make you swallow three pumpkins at the same time if you cross his path.
The toughest girl in town, Marjoram makes sure that everyone knows the quad is her territory and they're just living in it.
