This book gave me so many Totoro feels whenever Crenshaw was around. But it also could have used more Crenshaw. The amount of time we are given to get to know and understand Crenshaw was very small, but the overall story was great, you follow a young boy who‘s family is losing everything again. The boy is trying to deal with it but has a hard time expressing himself. It‘s a bittersweet story and written so well. I adore Applegate‘s storytelling.

I love Santat's illustrations & kids will love the whimsical story of a friend not yet "imagined"
Students could draw versions of their own unimaginary friends, connecting reading with art

Kayladvazquez I love your activity idea. This book has an amazing illustration. The activity can even go as far as making it a group assignment. If it was a science lesson you could have the students actually create their imaginary friend using recycled items. 1w

This book is amazing; there is no other way to put it. I can only hope my kids have an inner strength like Max to overcome their challenges.

"Imaginary friends a like books. We're created, we're enjoyed, we're dogeared and creased, and then we're tucked away until we're needed again."
An enjoyable read about family struggles, and homelessness.

Anyone else seen this show? Absofreakinlutely insane show about a gritty ex-cop and a blue cartoon unicorn named Happy. And now I want to get my hands on the source material.

Maybe I'm weird, but I never had any imaginary friends. I was fine keeping myself entertained, but I never felt the need to create imaginary playmates to join in.

I found the episode, Imaginary Friend, to be kind of lackluster, too neatly tied up with a talk from Picard to Isabella. Not much of a menace.

cobwebmoth I had imaginary friends as a kid, but they weren't very original. They were The Brady Bunch. I would make my mom set extra places at the table for Marsha and Greg.😄 1mo
Megabooks @cobwebmoth That sounds like me! My imaginary friends were the Star Trek crew, and we were always doing obstacle courses. 🤷🏻‍♀️😁 1mo
audraelizabeth I never had any either. I just usually read or played by myself. 1mo
Reggie My dad took me to see the Sixth Sense one weekend when I was visiting from college. He told me that he related to that kid because when he was younger everyone thought he had an imaginary friend while he thought he had a real friend nobody could see. At first I thought he might be joking but he never said just kidding. He said the boy just one day never came back. 1mo

I really enjoyed this book when it was first released, and now I‘m glad to have the audiobook. The MC has to give up her #ImaginaryFriend when she goes to school.

Fortunately, my parents didn‘t make me give up my imaginary trips with the Enterprise crew, but they stopped when I was about eight. 😂😂
