Description

Stealth of the Ninja, book eight in the "Submarine Outlaw" series, brings Alfred, our courageous and idealistic protagonist, to a whole new level of experience when he pilots his homemade submarine to Japan. Here he visits a strange old man who lives on an abandoned freighter drifting on the sea. The man - a ninja, in fact - challenges Al to acquire greater physical strength and stealth. But it is also the time of the 2011 tsunami, and the giant wave capsizes and sinks the ship, taking his new teacher with it. Al barely escapes in his sub. Certain that the old man is still alive and trapped inside the sunken ship, Al faces the difficult decision of whether to attempt a most dangerous rescue. Should a seventeen-year-old put his life at great risk to save a one-hundred-year-old man? Or can one sometimes say that the risk is simply too great? Al must decide quickly. Time is running out.

Contributor Notes

PHILIP ROY was born and raised in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and now lives in Durham, Ontario, with his wife, three children and a cat. Whenever possible, he visits the places he writes about in the "Submarine Outlaw" series - Japan in the case of Stealth of the Ninja. The only thing better than travelling, he contends, is writing about it and visiting schools to share his stories and research with young readers. Visit www.philiproy.ca.
