This is what their rights director Zoltan Komlo had to say about the book:

We’re extremely proud to be the Hungarian publisher of Weird Weather. Minutes after opening the manuscript a few weeks ago, we knew this is a one of a kind book: not only because it deals with a crucially important topic but also because of how it deals with it. We think the illustrations and the whole layout is captivating, and the fact that the book is informative and entertaining at the same time is astonishing. We congratulate the authors and are looking forward to publishing Weird Weather next year

– Zoltan Komlo, Rights Director, Ciceró Könyvstúdió, Hungary
