Babban Hajjam is curious to know why barbers who go to the palace to give the king a haircut never return. When it is his turn to be summoned, Babban gets his answer. Will Babban stay out of trouble by keeping his incredible discovery under wraps, or does the secret unravel and seal his fate? Ira Saxena infuses mystery and laughter into this classic Indian folktale, and Mayukh Ghosh’s larger-than-life illustrations make this book a visual treat.
