Matthew Parker is the second most recurring kid character with over seventy appearances. He is an inquisitive 12-13 year old who loves to tinker with things—often to the consternation of everyone around him. But when he isn't breaking and rebuilding stuff, he's helping Emily Jones solve mysteries around town through the Jones and Parker Detective Agency (Emily claims that he is her sidekick; his side of it is that they are partners). He is in a secret tinkerer's club that meets in Haggler's Junkyard. Matthew was also the third person to try the Inspiration Station, the other two being Whit and Connie. Matthew has a fear of public speaking. He loves food.
