Addressing the reader directly in a picture book?
I've had an idea for a pic books for 0-4 year old and I wondered if it's possible to address the reader directly, for example: 'Do you know...?'
The only other pic book that uses this technique that I'm aware of is Don't Let the Pidgeon Drive the Bus (I think there's a sequel as well) but it's slightly different as the Pidgeon is interactive and the reader is expected to react/reply to the pidgeon's pestering.
Would a pic book addressing the reader/child be rejected straightaway?
Thanks for you help.
