Hungary fines bookshop chain depicting LGBT families in book

A bookshop chain in Hungary has been fined for selling a children’s story which depicts a day in the life of a child with same-sex parents. The officials condemned the picture book for featuring such families.

Named  ‘Micsoda család!’, the book is a Hungarian translation combining two titles by US author Lawrence Schimel and illustrator El?na Brasli?a: Early One Morning.

It shows a young boy’s morning with his two mothers, and Bedtime, Not Playtime!, in which a young girl with two fathers is reluctant to go to sleep.
