Published in three languages – German, English and Hungarian –, the volume Pécs for Children came out in 2010. It was also the very first city guide for children in Hungary. Thanks for the events of Pécs 2010 European Capital of Culture, every 5th-grade children in the city received it as a gift from the local government.

The 160 illustration of the hundred page long book was made by the students of the University of Pécs, Faculty of Arts (Edina Simon, Erzsébet Orsós, László Ormay) with the coordination of the proficient graphic designer Dóri Sirály. The illustrators were chosen through an open call and participated on a professional German language workshop in the Szivárvány Gyermekház.
