Editorial Reviews


"[W]ill delight middle-grade readers, and has the satisfying feel of a classic '80s kids movie that older readers especially will find highly charming. The characters are colorful and winning... Henry, a stalwart alien companion reminiscent of Chewbacca, is a particular standout. Readers will appreciate how prized intelligence is within the book, as they figure out plot twists at about the same time as the characters. This book is well worth a read for sci-fi fans of any age." - RT Book Reviews

"An enthralling, page-turning sci-fi adventure. The makings of
an epic!...The characters, many of them very, VERY odd, spring off the page...If you are looking for a fascinating sci-fi/fantasy adventure populated with interesting characters and an intriguing setting, this book is for you." - The Wishing Shelf Book Awards Reviews - Five Star Review
"[A] fast-paced and engaging read, with a fresh take on some familiar concepts and a strong character arc at its center." - IndieReader

"Tweens and teens--and kids at heart--will encounter thrills, mysteries,and an abundance of life lessons in THE MAKER, a whimsical novel set inspace." - IndieReader Discovery Awards - The Verdict

"[A]wesome! Vibrant and energetic characters living in an amazingly designed world...This book gets something I rarely give, and that's my whole hearted recommendation. It may be labelled a children's book, and it will certainly inspire and engage that audience, but it also possesses great value as an adult read...In short, great writing style, brilliant ideas, gripping plot, funny to read. Basically, The Maker, is everything you could want in a book." - Author K. J. Simmill for Readers' Favorite - Five Star Review

"The fast-paced action and suspense kept me glued to the book...I wouldrecommend this book for imaginative kids ages 8-13.  Those who lovecreating art will especially appreciate Nate's story." - LitPick - Five Star Review (13-year-old reviewer)

"A great delight for young readers, The Maker by D.F. Anderson introduces readers to a hero that is inspiring and lovable in a memorable adventure...The author has the uncanny gift of creating a world that is abstract but that feels familiar to readers...The writing in The Maker is masterly and the pacing of this genre will be gripped." - Arya Fomonyuy for Readers' Favorite - Five Star Review

"Anderson writes like a master and readers will enjoy the way he brings out the thoughts and the worldview of the protagonist. He actually makes his hero lovable. Character development is superb...The setting of the story is great and cinematic, and readers will find vivid images flooding their imaginations...[O]riginal, gripping, and utterly delightful." - Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite - Five Star Review

"It got exciting very quickly, and I found myself enjoying it immensely.Packed with action, a smoothly-flowing plot, and a unique setting, thisbook made for a read that kept me on the edge of my seat." - LitPick - Five Star Review (16-year-old reviewer)

"Anderson deftly explores the limits of human potential in this entertaining and action-packed story...Meer, the parallel planet he ends up on, is endlessly fascinating... While this is listed as a children's book, I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who enjoys a bit of metaphysics sprinkled into their fantasy....The Maker is most highly recommended." - Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite - Five Star Review

"[An] enchanting story about Nate, a teenage boy, who loves to draw...The characters are unique and fantastic...[W]ritten with beauty and skill...The mixture of nature science and the fantasy of magic is refreshing... Anderson has a great imagination and does a wonderful job sharing it...I would recommend this story to anyone who wants to lose themselves in a terrific adventure." - Author Kris Moger for Readers' Favorite - Five Star Review
