That's sort of the age range I'm interested in - maybe a little more 6-10 (first to fourth grade in US) I'm working on science-based but speculative fiction, trying not to use incorrect basic information. For example, I've got a talking frog, but all the science is right and his name is Rana.I used to try writing stuff for the 8-12 range.
When my daughter was little she told me the secret of writing for children: the children get the advantage over the grown-ups. The children win. It's Roald Dahl's secret. Harry Potter too. There you go. Lol ...I'd like to generally discuss and maybe share some work.
I definitely agree about pirates. I got into "scientifically accurate" because The Very Hungry Caterpillar sent me apoplectic. lol Kids love it, but it's all wrong; and it would have been so easy to be right.It's always fantasy of some flavour I try to write. The main stuff I worked on for that age range was a series of pirate books with my dad. There's not enough pirate fiction around. I can't see I've seen too much scientifically accurate talking frog fiction either...
No problem with the magic. But Harry Potter was a winner over the grown-ups. That was the real magic of Harry Potter?But the magic is super! I'll might get trolled, but I love those books.
