Description - Submarine Outlaw by Philip Roy

Submarine Outlaw takes YA readers on a unique journey when Alfred, a young boy who wants to be an explorer -- not a fisherman, as his family demands -- teams up with a junkyard genius to build a submarine that he sails around the Maritimes. When the submarine is mistaken for a Russian spy sub and chased by the coastguard, a thrilling high-seas chase ensues. The First Prize Winner of the Atlantic Writers Competition, "Submarine Outlaw" shows how any great goal in life requires patience, determination and hard work, but also how hard work on one's dream can be a joyous and valuable experience.

Author Biography - Philip Roy

Philip Roy continues to travel back and forth between Nova Scotia and Ontario, keeping residence in both places. For some half-dozen years now, he has been presenting orally a series of stories at local schools, fairs, and markets called Happy the Pocket Mouse. The first of the series, Mouse Tales, illustrated by Andrea Torrey Balsara, will be released by Ronsdale Press in spring 2014. This series of picture books complements Philips Submarine Outlaw series for young adults, which is now up to volume six. Recently he travelled to Australia to research the materials for the next book in the series, Eco Warrior, to appear in the fall of 2014. Travelling makes for great adventure, Philip contends. The only thing better is writing about it and visiting schools and libraries to share the stories with young readers. Visit Philip Roys website at
