Charley is Emily Elizabeth's best human friend. Charley and his dad are from Jamaica, and live on a houseboat. Charley's dad owns and runs Samuel's Fish and Chips Shack, which is one of Charley and Emily Elizabeth's favorite places to eat!

Whenever a friend needs help, Charley's there to lend a hand…or a foot, since he's also the best soccer player on Birdwell Birds (the school soccer team).
