Submarine Outlaw takes young adult 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. The book takes the reader through the hands-on process of submarine construction into the world of real ocean navigation, replete with a high-seas chase, daring rescue and treasure hunting. Children will identify with Alfred's desire for an adventurous life and the sense of empowerment that comes with building his own submarine and operating it independently. They will also love the unusual crew - a rescued dog and a quirky seagull. The First Prize Winner of the Atlantic Writers Competition, Submarine Outlaw shows how any great goal in life takes a good deal of patience, determination and hard work. But also how hard work on one's dream becomes an act of joy. "Philip Roy's Submarine Outlaw is a wildly imaginative story of adventure full of surprises and fast paced, yet there is also wisdom and insight to be found here." - Lesley Choyce "Submarine Outlaw and its sequels have firmly established themselves as a riveting adventure series that has gathered a significant following who are anxiously awaiting this next installment. And they will not be disappointed! This personal quest and the internal struggles that it evokes for Alfred give this book a new dimension and allow his character to be more fully developed. . . . Roy continues to keep this series fresh and engaging. We will all join Alfred in anticipating his next voyage." - Atlantic Books Today "A truly riveting adventure story, Submarine Outlaw will likely capture the heart and minds of all who have longed to escape the confines of their everyday world and try something exciting and even dangerous." - janeonbooks.edublogs.org "A refreshing Canadian novel about following a dream." - Resource Links "A terrific and uniquely imaginative premise for an Atlantic Canada novel for kids." - The Chronicle Herald "Submarine Outlaw is so well written it is totally believable. Dramatic and touching. Highly recommended!" - Hi-Rise Newspaper "Submarine Outlaw is a fast-paced, adventure novel that leaves you wanting more. . . . I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great read." - What If? Magazine

Philip Francis Roy was born and raised in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. He grew up beside the ocean, and it now features in many of the stories he writes. His university studies included music and history, but he also knew from an early age that he wanted to write novels. Travelling far and wide, Roy continues to weave tales of adventure, history, geography and cultural diversity. Commenting on his Submarine Outlaw series, Philip says, "These are the stories I wished I could have read when I was young. It is such a joy to write them now and share them with readers young and old." When not travelling, Philip divides his time between Nova Scotia and Ontario.
