Janna looks forward to every Saturday and the special ritual she and her best friend -- her grandfather -- share that takes them through town to the barber shop, where he appears to her young eyes as a “king” meeting the other kings, his pals Terrell, Amos, and Mr. Odell. When he dies, many Saturdays pass before she has the courage to return to the barber shop. Then one day she finds herself standing in the doorway. Suddenly the other “kings” notice her. This tender, lovingly illustrated tale is based on the author’s own childhood memories of Saturdays spent in the barber shop with her father.
