Fiction. Young Adult Novel. What happens when a fearless young explorer teams up with a junkyard genius and builds a submarine? Going to sea with an unusual crew, a strangely intelligent seagull with attitude and a dog that nobody wanted, Alfred unwittingly becomes the "Submarine Outlaw" and discovers that the sea is a busy place. Escaping from the coastguard when he is mistaken for a Russian spy sub, rescuing a family on a sailboat in a storm, and running from thieves who are after the gold coins he has raised from the floor of the Louisburg harbor, Alfred learns that a modern explorer must keep his wits about him as he sails on the high seas, or beneath them. First prize winner in the Atlantic Writers Competition.

A somewhat unusual story--a boy travelling throughout the Maritimes in his own homemade submarine--with a seagull and a dog for a crew--but it works--and it's really the start to an incredible adventure series. I would recommend this to anyone--young or old! I love this series--it's one of the best I've ever encountered!

Alfred, Ziegfried, and Sheba are all great characters--but you can't forget Hollie and Seaweed! This is a great book, and the series just gets better and better!
