Google illustrations just celebrated Elisabeth “Ellis” Kaut (17 November 1920 – 24 September 2015) Birthday. Ellis was a German author of children’s literature, best known for her creation of Pumuckl, a kobold appearing in radio plays and TV series. She also published novellas and some illustrated books.
My children are just crazy about Meister Eder and Pumuckl. My daughter finds Pumuckl just plain funny, specifically when he doesn’t listen to Meister Eder. Hmm, that kind of sounds familiar to me.
