Book Description:

The Barber’s Cutting Edge is a touching celebration of the close relationship between a young African American boy and his community mentor. Jam-packed with little boys, big boys, dads, and neighbors, Mr. Bigalow’s barbershop is a familiar place to talk, to play dominoes, to read, and in Rashaad’s case, to get a little extra help with his schoolwork. Not only does Mr. Bigalow know all the latest styles, he also knows all the words on Rashaad’s vocabulary list. Whether it’s haircuts or words, Mr. Bigalow is the best at what he does. He is also a friend and a role model and as Rashaad puts it, "one cool dude."

Holbert’s vibrant drawings capture the lively atmosphere and warm spirit of the barbershop.
