Product description

Review

“This accessible and moving novel demonstrates how the creative resilience of a child's mind can soften difficult situations, while exploring the intersection of imagination and truth.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The tone is warm and, occasionally, quirkily funny, but it doesn't sugarcoat the effects of hunger and vulnerability. This novel adds a middle-grade perspective to the literature of imaginary friends and paints a convincing and compassionate portrait of a social class―the working poor―underrepresented in children's books.” ―
The Horn Book, starred review

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a very good book 📖
By rahul s. on 30 November 2020
I gave Crenshaw a five star 🌟 because it was shipped in a good condition and it was a very good book 📖 👌 👍 😀. Come join ten year old Jackson who has an imaginary friend .
Crenshaw is a cat 🐈 he is large he is outspoken and he is imaginary. He has come back in Jackson's life to help him --- but is an imaginary friend enough to save his family from losing everything. Well you will find out!!😃
