Drawings illustrating the story "Mach Mut" by Nadja Zerdick.

 

 

 

It is impossible to translate this story because it is based on the pun with the German words "mach mut" which means "encourage" and the word "Mammut" which means "mammoth" . There are certain words in german ending with the syllable "mut", all with very very different meanings. And "Mut" as a single word means "courage". So in the story there are different mammoths all with names ending on the syllable "mut"  meaning "courage". And in the center of the story there is the little mammoth girl "Edelmut" which means "nobleness" searching for her own mission in life. With courage - sure.
