NOTE: I have no clue as to how to write a children's book. From what I have observed in my writing style, writing for young adults to adults is my thing. Let's assume that I want to write a book geared for small children. The book in question is about a hominoid lizard kid who lives with his human caretakers in a fantasy country where humans and hominoid lizards coexist. This lizard boy is of the same age and maturity level as his human friend, Eddie Keller. When I envision this, I envision it like a picture book with the pictures on the top and the words on the bottom. (basically, like the Bearstein Bears.) The questions I have: (a) What is the age range of children who are reading that type of book? (b) The reason I think this should be a "picture book" thing is because Benny is a lizard and somehow, I don't think it'd fit well in another format. (c) Beside the typical plots addressing the things children face, I thought "hey, these two are boys, so why couldn't I write some of the stories where they're heroes defeating some evil?" Advice? EDIT and OT: Yes, I'm still writing Heridon Copper in case you thought I was ditching him. This idea about the lizard kid had been floating around for a bit, so I felt like asking.
