Jackson’s family is no stranger to hard times and the return of his imaginary friend, Crenshaw, signals that hard times may have found them once again. Crenshaw first appeared when Jackson was young and his family started living in their van. The sharply dressed, surfboard riding cat helps Jackson when he needs it most, but Jackson feels that he is now too old for an imaginary friend.
