Item description for Attack of the Turtle (Eerdmans Books For Young Readers) by Drew Carlson & David A. Johnson...

During the Revolutionary War, fourteen-year-old Nathan Wade joins forces with his older cousin, the inventor David Bushnell, to secretly build the first submarine used in naval warfare. Reprint.

Publishers Description
It's 1776, and the Revolutionary War is raging. Fourteen-year-old Nathan Wade is a patriot, but he's too young to join the fight. Then his cousin David Bushnell comes to town with a secret. David has designed a water machine that can explode bombs underwater. And his mission is to launch it against the British warships in New York harbor.

Nate reluctantly agrees to help David build the weapon of war 2; dubbed the "American Turtle," Although he's terrified of water and worried about getting caught, when unlikely circumstances put Nate at the center of the action, he must face the murky waters of his fears head-on.

Based on actual historical events, this adventure story captures the drama of the first submarine used in naval warfare and the struggles of a teenager overcoming self-doubt.

Reviews - What do customers think about Attack of the Turtle?

Attack of the Turtle: A Great Read and Much More!  Apr 12, 2007
I am an adult who happens to love children's literature and also history. Consequently, I read Attack of the Turtle. It is similar to the American Girls historical novels but for boys of the same age group, something that has not been available thus far. (Girls will also enjoy the book, however!) Turtle is well written, interesting, and engaging. When I had finished the book, I found myself wanting to know more--both about the characters the author created so well and about the historical events represented. I have a young niece who also read the book, and she agreed that, afterward, she wanted to know more. An author who encourages people of all ages to want MORE has created something magical, in my opinion. I hope Mr. Carlson has many more stories in mind!
