“Etana's - the snail's home always goes with it, and so does a child's home too, when a favorite book is under their arms.”

— Jenni and Reka from Etana Editions

The award winning publishing house was founded by Jenni Erkintalo and Reka Kiraly in 2014. They are the antennas of Etana the snail, that receives children’s wishes and needs. They work with a set of wonderful storytellers who create the shell house of stories on the back of Etana the snail, and share their passion for children's books.

 


"Wonderful concept, smashing illustrated books, beautiful and colourful works."

— H.L.
