Móra Publishing House was founded in 1950. In 1957 the company took the name of the noted Hungarian writer, Ferenc Móra and remained the only publisher of children's books in the country for several decades.
The company managed to retain Hungarian publication rights to the most acclaimed international books for children and young adults after the transition to democracy, and gradually regained its role as market leader after the turn of the millennium. Some of its most significant titles are: The Paul Street Boys (Ferenc Molnár), Winnie-the-Pooh (A. A. Milne), The Little Prince (A. de Saint-Exupéry), Bambi (Felix Salten), Belle and Sebastien (Cécile Aubry), and Momo (Michael Ende).
Móra is the Hungarian home of the works of Erich Kästner, Gianni Rodari, Astrid Lindgren, Richard Scarry, Philip Reeve, and Timothée de Fombelle. Our mission is to provide Hungarian readers with quality contemporary children's, juvenile and YA foreign literature, while at the same time successfully representing a number of outstanding Hungarian writers abroad.
