Below are a few recent reviews of his book.
From Floral Street Elementary School principal - Lisa McCubrey:
"I read his Danny and the Portal of the World story and marveled at his use of language. He is so descriptive and uses such sophisticated structures and vocabulary. He certainly has a talent for writing, and I love that he feels so passionately about writing!"
From Head of Children's Services of Shrewsbury Public Library - Nancy Colby:
"Very impressive, David! I really enjoyed reading your first book and look forward to the sequel. Thank you for sharing."
From children's book author and editor - April Jones Prince:
"I was happy to read "Danny and the Portal of the World" and discover David T. Lee's vivid imagination. The story has so much action, and there is obviously a very creative and fertile mind behind it. For example, I love the Inventions Famous Ingredients Store! David has a fabulous vocabulary and terrific use of details. He also did a great job choosing which moments in the story to illustrate; the illustrations of the 4,982 jeeps and SUVs and the amusement park are especially wonderful. All in all, a great achievement!"
