From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-- Magical talents are not unusual in the kingdoms in this novel; teenaged Jamie Falconer's particular talent is an ability to whistle up a wind--a useful skill in an age of sailing ships. As an orphan serving a difficult term as potboy in the Pirate's Rest Inn, he is more than happy to find himself kidnapped by the crew of the Betty, a pirate ship led by the infamous Captain Deadmon (who is incidentally a dead man). Jamie volunteers to sign on as cabin boy for the kindly, middle-aged crew, and to try to help them in their search for the true dragon's plunder that can release the Captain from his long captivity in a dead body. This is an interesting mix of themes and motifs. The occasional appearances of magic in wind-whistling and rope-tying and such seem almost extraneous to the more universal elements of character and plot. A brave young boy, a captive princess who is not as royal but twice as smart as she seems, a shy but gallant poet and his lady love, the long-suffering captain, and a very educated dragon are only some of the characters intertwined in this entertaining and poignant light fantasy-adventure. --Susan L.
