Eight-year-old kid barber J.D. takes his talent to an Atlanta hair show in this illustrated chapter-book series.

At only eight years old, kid barber J.D. already has an impressive resume. He beat his nemesis in the Great Barber Battle of Meridian, Mississippi, and the online hair tutorials he made with his sister landed him on local TV. In J.D. and the Hair Show Showdown, J.D. steps onto a larger stage in Atlanta as the youngest participant in a national hair showcase. The world of hair and beauty is so much bigger than J.D. could’ve imagined, and he’s is ready to step up his game alongside the pros.

From the creative mind of J. Dillard, an entrepreneur, public speaker, and personal barber, comes a new chapter-book series with characters that are easy to fall for and nearly impossible to forget. Akeem S. Roberts’ lively illustrations make this series a must-buy for reluctant readers.

Series Overview: An illustrated chapter-book series about a kid barber in Meridian, Mississippi, and his growing business empire. Titles include: J.D. and the Great Barber Battle (spring 2021), J.D. and the Family Business (summer 2021), and J.D. and the Hair Show Showdown (fall 2021).
