Davy is a shy and slender little boy. His parents are divorced, and he lives with his mother. Ramona first meets Davy in kindergarten, in the book Ramona the Pest, in which he is the only boy in the class to wear short pants. She thinks he's so cute she decides to kiss him. She chases him around the playground almost each morning in kindergarten. Finally, at the Halloween parade, as Ramona sees Davy in a pirate costume, knowing it by his thin legs, she kisses him through her mask.
Davy is in first grade along with Ramona in Ramona the Brave, and it is discovered that Davy is having reading problems. He reads certain words backwards, which leads one to believe that Davy may have dyslexic. Ramona is torn because she wants to help Davy out, but her teacher "refuses".
Davy did not make any more appearances in the Ramona Series.
