I was worried/excited that Journey to Atlantis would break entirely from the precedent set by the first book in the series and suddenly have mermaids, a city suspended under a bubble on the bottom of the ocean, or other such impossibilities. Worried for readers who were drawn to the first book because of it's realistic tone and wealth of information; excited because Atlantis is pretty cool. Turns out, my worry was unnecessary. Magical creatures don't suddenly pop out of the ocean to take Alfred, ...more

This delightful novel begins with something I have always believed:

"The thing is, people have never stopped talking about it (Atlantis). That doesn't make sense. Why would people talk about something for so long if it never existed."

I must admit that I was very impressed with this novel. It was fast paced, and really fun to read. Al is a very insightful and curious lead character who seems to have this natural ability to get himself in (and out of) trouble. While some of his perils were a tad ov

Give a 15-year-old boy a small homemade submarine, a dog, a seagull, and a mission and you have adventure. This is the second book in the Submarine Outlaw series. Despite the title, young Al is only an outlaw because he may not have all the appropriate paperwork. That does not stop him from rescuing folks, meeting movie stars, thwarting pirates, saving a desert community by fixing an old engine, and crossing the Atlantic to search for Atlantis. Did he find it? Ah, that's the question. This is an ...more

My kids loved Journey to Atlantis (book 2) even more than the first book in the series, (Submarine Outlaw). Philip Roy does a great job of appealing to the explorer in all of us. And he definitely raises the question of whether or not Atlantis exists. Al's travels in the Mediterranean are interesting, and magical. This is the kind of book that both girls and boys love; it's well-written and fascinating from start to finish. 5 stars, for sure!

I read this book out loud to my kids and my 10-year-old son just LOVED it and protested each time we had to put the book aside. I'll be seeing out the other books in the series.

These books get better and better. I've always wondered about Atlantis, just like Alfred does. I also love the cover on this novel in the series....
