    6. The Maker, a work of fantastical science fiction by D.F Anderson, is a book that is difficult to summarize in just one paragraph The main character, Nate, is going through a tough time in his life He hasn t seen his father in six months ever since his parents got divorced Ted, his new Dad, discourages Nate s love of drawing The only reminder Nate has of his old life is a special binder that his Dad sent to him where Nate puts all of his artwork.One night, furry mice like creatures steal Nate s b [...]

    7. First paragraph It starts as a half moon with a braided cord hanging from the bottom Wavy strings grow from the cord Tentacles Kind of looks like a jellyfish I add curvy lines until they re a thick maze slithering down the page I close my eyes, focusing on the image in my mind A lidless eye glares at me from the jellyfish s back With a sinking heart, I trace out every creepy detail.About the story Nate loves to draw He gets the passion from his dad, who disappeared without a word six months ago [...]

    9. Fantastic young adult teen novel D.F Anderson does a wonderful job bringing to life the world of fantasy science fiction His characters are interesting and personable as personable as aliens can be and are designed to keep the likes of teenage boys enraptured with the story unfolding before their eyes Though it may be appealing to the younger generation I have to admit that I fully enjoyed reading this exceptional piece of fantasy science fiction fun I d be willing to read a lot from Anderson [...]

    12. This book was a pleasant surprise, I have the fortune to read this almost at the end of the year and it s amazing.At first, you won t notice where this book goes to, but I don t mean the story itself but the audience, is it for kids Maybe, the protagonist is a teenager, the events, settings, pace, sequences and the plot itself is something kids can understand and assimilate quickly, but that s not to say it isn t logical, which come to my second point, the writing, which is exquisite and makes e [...]

    13. The idea of drawing things that become real as a part of one s quest is one that crops up from time to time, and this was perhaps one of the best renderings of that idea that I ve come across.Technically, the writing is great dialogue a weak spot for many authors flows well, and the plot is, as others have said, well constructed.If I must find anything to criticise and I do generally try to include some positive and negative in reviews, though some books make it harder to do one or the other it [...]

    15. Fantasy book that pulls you in right from the very beginning I loved the imagery that the author uses in this book The details were fantastic and you could really see the locations and creatures that the author described This was a fantastic read that was just difficult to put down for any length of time While this is geared to children, I found that I really enjoyed the book and will be putting it away for my own children to read in the future I found that the main character was very easy to l [...]

    17. This was pitched to me as Star Wars meets Harold and the Purple Crayon, and I have to say, the comparison is apt I totally fell in love with Nate, my new favorite middle grade fantasy hero He is super passionate about drawing but often feels like the images just flow through him unbidden compulsively, even until one day, when Nate is greeted by a tree A moving tree One that also might double as a space vehicle responsible for traveling to another planet Then his secret talent starts to all make [...]

    18.

    19. I got this book for free, but this does not affect my review I started off this book not expecting much I m not a big YA reader, and recent independent reads have left me wanting I was pleasantly surprised right out of the gate I was captured immediately in this world which I at first thought was going to be fantasy, but as Wishnal says in the book, it s always the assumption of magic that humans make when they don t understand science This story was such a cool twist on the traditional science [...]

    20. I loved this book It s a great blend of fantasy, creativity, fun and science fiction Though it s meant for middle schoolers, but who cares, I found it a light read and honestly enjoyed it At times, it s good to go back to those good old school years and enjoy the ride The book is about a 13 year old boy Nate, who has been struggling with his parents recently divorced and his failing grades in school Not to blame him, he is sad and upset, lacks confidence, but then things change and suddenly he h [...]

    21. I won this book in members giveaway I started reading this book expecting nothing I was pleasantly surprused to be honest The ideas are very new to me that tbe author introduced The characters are just introduced, I am guessing is to come, so I will not complain about character development I am going to gladly wait to see what happens next I liked the story but I have to be honest about the writing, it is better than a lot of other writing but still is not the best I think if turned into a scre [...]

    22.

    23. I loved the idea of this book, art, aliens, outer space, new planets but some how it fell short I would have loved to have know about the family dynamics, the divorce the missing parent, oh and about this art journal Instead most of the book is a thorough description of the plant like quality of this planet and less about the Maker art journal I felt that this part was rushed and glossed over but it was the most important part of the story.

    24. This is one book I would really like to see as a movie or regular show The descriptions of everthing from making to the creatures is fantastic Loved the book, could not put it down until I finished.

    25. This was an excellent book I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an excellent read I look forward to reading of this author s work.
