Elisabeth „Ellis“ Kaut’s 96th Birthday
17th November 2016 @ Google in Austria, Germany, Switzerland
Who’s that little goblin lighting the birthday cake? The impish Pumuckl, created by Elisabeth „Ellis” Kaut, has been playfully causing mischief since 1962. Pumuckl is a kobold, a kind of sprite based in German folklore. He constantly gets into trouble but never intends any real harm. Kaut, who would be 96 today, wrote more than 100 Pumuckl stories. She received several awards and honors for her work, including the prestigious Bavarian Poetentaler literary award.
Today’s Doodle was created by Barbara von Johnson, who became the primary Pumuckl illustrator in Kaut’s books after winning a competition at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts in 1963.
