Philip Roy. We tested how fast the sub could go and how quickly it could stop. We lowered listening sensors into the water from the beach and tested how much noise the sub made on its various maneuvers.

Philip Roy. sighting tests by standing on shore with a pair of binoculars. Ziegfried said the sub looked like a peanut floating on top of a pot of soup. Then, just when I thought maybe he had exhausted his list of tests, he began his secret tests. We were preparing for deeper water. Ziegfried, who had been fiddling in the stern, sat on the floor and waited for me to start the engine.

Submarine Outlaw takes YA readers on a unique journey when Alfred, a young boy who wants to be an explorer -- not a fisherman -- teams up with a junkyard genius to build a submarine that he sails around the Maritimes. The book takes the reader through the detailed 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 hard work on one's dream becomes an act of joy. Another important theme developed is the importance of good judgment. The main character learns first hand that he is equally able to make good and bad choices, and must quickly identify the difference. The theme of choosing a career of one's own in the face of familial or societal opposition is also well developed. There is an element of mystery and intrigue intrinsic to submarines that makes for compelling reading. When the main character is mistaken for a Russian spy sub and chased by the Canadian coastguard, the plot takes many exciting twists, making the book difficult to put down. Children will identify with the main character because he is an average young teen filled with desire and enthusiasm, and driven to follow his dreams. Step by step they will see how a typical, average young teen comes to live a very extraordinary experience.

The CD's were intact but the CD case was not sealed like they normally come.
The clips that hold the CD's in place were broken and the CD's were loose.
As I first picked up the package it sounded like a baby rattle.
Light scratches on the CD's were found.
This was definitely not a new item as described and what I paid for.

I started out reading this book because my son was reading it for summer and I wanted to make sure he was really reading it and understanding what he was reading. I didn't really know what to expect out of it, being that I didn't pick it out to read. Once I started reading it with him though, we were both hooked. This is such a neat adventure book for young adults and adults too. The young boy, Alfred, is turning 14 years old and doesn't want the life of a fisherman like he is seen by his grandfather as doing, just like all the men in the family have done. Alfred really wants to be an explorer and just be able to see things people haven't seen before or rarely seen. Soon he teams up with the grumpy junkyard owner and they decide to make a submarine so he can fulfill his adventure dreams. This book follows Alfred along his maiden journey of his homemade submarine. All the adventure, the great times, the bad times, the trouble, the new friends, and more.

This book was full of adventure and action. It didn't have a dull moment in it at all and was such a page turner that even my "reading isn't very fun" son admitted to loving it and can't wait to read more of the series to go on more adventures with Alfred and his submarine mates. He loved it even more because Alfred is so close to his own age and he too has a desire to explore and go on adventures. I have to admit that with all the wonderful adventure and great writing style of the author, I too can't wait to read on along with my son to see where Alfred's exploring takes him next. Such a great book! Very descriptive, very fast paced, and very easy to watch play out in your head as you read. It was just so much fun reading! It's a must read for any age.

5/5 Stars!!

Okay, I'll admit it. I was worried about this one. Realistic fiction about a kid who, with the help of a junkyard maven, turns an oil tank into a working submarine? I'm all for fantasy, but huge suspensions of disbelief in a story that is supposed to be realistic, of the kind I thought I was going to have to make right there in the first chapter, are not my strong suit. But then Ziegfried started, matter of factly, building a submarine out of an oil tank. There are almost 80 pages of the building and testing of this submarine, a lot for a 250 page book. It makes for a slow start to the story, but not a slow start for the book. Ziegfried explains everything he's doing as he goes along, ostensibly so that Alfred will be able to handle minor repairs on his own at sea, but really so that we readers will not have to make that huge jump on our own. It's so interesting to read about all the ways he's making sure things float and sink when you want them too, and it is, to my limited mechanical knowledge, pretty realistic.

Once the submarine is built, Alfred is off! Along the way he picks up a seagull and a dog, meets a lady who lives alone on an island save her own menagerie of furry and feathered companions, rescues a family at sea, finds some treasure, and gets chased by the coastguard, navy, and excited locals. Looking back, the whole thing is a bit episodic, but while reading, the story is not the least disjointed. The connecting theme is Alfred's realization that the actions of his 14 year old self in his little tiny submarine have consequences, good and bad. Over the course of the novel he learns how to weigh his choices before rushing into a decision, who to trust to help him, and that other people (and a bird and a dog) are counting on him. Basically, during his year at sea, he grows up.

The descriptions of how the submarine worked as well as the life at sea and along the coast of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia were incredibly interesting and often beautiful. This series will be a hit with readers interested in oceanography, treasure-hunting (but not pirates), and the general way things work. I can't wait to read about Alfred's next adventure, which will take him a bit farther from home and the relative safety of the coast.

If you need another reason to read this book, the paper it is printed on is made of 100% post-consumer waste! It doesn't really have anything to do with the story, clearly, but it's definitely a practice that should be applauded!
