Where dreams go to work!
|[PATRICK] 10 years old, smart, naive, funny, super cute "chubster" just trying to survive fifth grade. He wants to be good at sports, he wants to be cool, he’s just not. Young Patrick is sweet, a little sheltered, the baby in the family, and that makes him ripe for the picking in the world. He takes it all to heart. He’s a gentle, fat soul.

[MAURICE] 12 years old, African American, confident and self-assured, he is Patrick’s only and best friend, a little black kid who is unabashedly gay and doesn’t apologize for it. Like Patrick, Maurice is teased for being different, but unlike Patrick, he doesn’t let it get to him. At recess, he spends his time teasing out the hair of his Barbie dolls on the playground. Neither Maurice nor Patrick is very athletic but Maurice still gets picked for the kickball team first, despite his clear lack of interest in sports…SERIES REGULAR
