Natalie & Naughtily (Hardcover)
Natalie and Naughtily Nopps live in a house on top of a big department store. Natalie loves visiting every floor from top to bottom! Naughtily? From bottom to top! One day the girls receive a note from their parents asking them NOT to play in the store that day!
“Today we shall go to the store to help!” they agree.
Evening gowns are on two, perfume and hats on three, coats on four . . . and on every floor there are customers galore. But will the girls really be any help? Vincent X. Kirsch has created a splendid world for Natalie and Naughtily, in which every vividly detailed floor in the store has its own magnificent hue. Readers will be enchanted by these two impish sisters, their very good intentions, and most of all by the hijinks and adventures they effortlessly conjure up in one very busy day!
About the Author
Vincent X. Kirsch has been creating funny little characters for fifteen years, but Natalie and Naughtily are the first ones to have their own book. An illustrator, designer, toymaker, and writer, Mr. Kirsch once worked as a store and window designer at Bergdorf Goodman, a famous department store in New York City. One of the families who owned the store lived in a house on the top floor. That house, the inspiration for Natalie and Naughtily is now a hair salon.
"Wonderful! I adore it! It's incredibly, beautifully drawn and so clever and so classic and modern at the same time." --Isaac Mizrahi
Debut novelist J.J. Gesher tells an intimate, grief-filled story about Jacob Fischer - a sometimes wayward, sometimes obedient Brooklyn Orthodox Jew who breaks down after a devastating loss. Slowly rebuilding and rediscovering himself in a small-town Alabama town, Jacob has support from a cast of well-drawn characters - who also have their own demons to deal with. I loved learning more about the Orthodox Jew and the rich history of its sometimes stifling traditions, butting heads with modern sensibilities and realities. This highly readable title, right down to the very last sentence, is a natural pick for book clubs. A strong debut from the writing pair of J.J. Gesher. - Maureen
