Overview

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!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
The idea of twins as both the same and different has a certain fascination for children and adults alike and word play "twinned" names like Natalie and Naughtily just adds to the fun. It is very likely that children will enjoy poring over Tanaka's whimsical and detailed pictures of the grand department store in which the Nopps twins live. The appeal may be increased by the fact that both the store and the art are reminiscent of the Madeline stories. Unfortunately, the story of Natalie and Naughtily's adventures is itself a bit clumsy. When the Butler gives the twins a note announcing their parents would like them not to go to the store that day, the twins immediately proceed to wreak havoc on each of the nine floors of the store. When the two girls are finally sent home, they are suddenly joined by a matched set of boys, Rudy and Ridley. Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry

K-Gr 3

Twins Natalie and Naughtily live in a house on top of Nopps, the world's greatest department store. Though they are supposed to stay out of the way on busy shopping days, they decide to go downstairs to see if they can assist the customers. Natalie appears conservative in her blue skirt and matching hair ribbon. Naughtily is a free spirit, wearing fairy wings, a clown nose, and high-top sneakers. Floors one through nine are each depicted on a two-page painting rich in whimsical detail. The story is well paced as most pages end with the girls heading to the next floor up, seeking another way to help out. On the fourth floor, for example, there's a sale on leftover winter wear: Natalie sells "two coats for the price of one," while Naughtily sells "one coat for the price of two." Kirsch's watercolor and graphite illustrations are a balance of bright, lively hues and dreary gray tones. The book ends with a list of Natalie's favorite things floor by floor, which are actually hidden in the preceding pages. Fans of O'Connor's Fancy Nancy (HarperCollins) will delight in the humor and mischief found within Nopps.-Lisa Glasscock, Columbine Public Library, Littleton, CO

Meet 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.

    A SMILE PROVOKING SISTER ACT

    Natalie and Naughtily are sisters, the Nopps sisters, who live in a house on the top of Nopps famous department store. Now, Naughtily may not be the quite an accurate name for Naughtily as she's not really naughty. It's simply that she has her own way of doing things - if Natalie wants to go one way, Naughtily wants to go another, if Natalie wants to play on every floor from top to bottom, Naughtily want to play from bottom to top. Their favorite days are rainy days because those are the only days they're allowed to play in the store. Imagine what a playground a huge department store complete with elevators, escalators, and a floor full of toys would be! On one rainy day the girls received a note from their parents saying that it would help very much if they did not come to the store that day as it was going to be especially busy. 'Help' was the key word to the sisters and they decided to go to the store to help. Young readers will find out exactly what kind of help they provided in this whimsical, smile provoking book by Vincent X. Kirsch. Full page, detailed watercolor and colored pencil drawings are delightful. - Gail Cooke
