Kenny is a dynamic character because he changes from a boy that admires his brother to a young man who finds his own way.

A static character is one who does not change or grow over the course of the book.  A dynamic character develops, changes, learns and grows.  An example of Kenny being a dynamic character is his reaction to his brother Byron.  At first, Kenny worships Byron.  His older brother is interesting because he is defiant and has Grand Adventures.  After a while, Kenny realizes that Byron is not the kind of person he wants to be.  He decides to make his own choices and be his own person.
