Tracy Tam doesn't really believe in Santa Claus, at least not like the rest of us do. She also doesn't believe that Santa can possibly deliver all of those presents in one night, to children around the world, without a little help from science. A flying sleigh can only be powered by jet engines, after all, and Santa’s magical abilities can only be the result of altered DNA ...more

This is an adorable story and took me back to my childhood when i would stay up late and see if could catch Santa. I totally loved how Tracy has the best intentions on why she wants to figure Santa out and how all the neat little details their are in the story. This was a cute story that all adults and children will enjoy reading if you love Santa stories.

Ten year old Tracy Tam is very studious. She’s out to prove that Santa doesn’t exist and she almost does. What!!?? Oh, bah humbug – I’m not out to destroy children’s dreams of Santa magic and neither is this book. But, kids may be biting their nails for a while to see how the story unfolds. Tracy has all good intentions. Her cousin needs a very expensive operation that her parents can’t afford. If Tracy can provide scientific proof of Santa — or his non-existence — and win the grand prize from t ...more

Ten-year-old Tracy Tam has a hypothesis, based on the slogan of the Santa Commission: “Even magic needs a helping hand.” But her hypothesis is that there’s no such thing as magic at all, only science that is disguised or undiscovered. That’s why she sets out on Christmas Eve to gather evidence for the science behind Santa Claus – that and the little matter of a state science fair with enough prize money to pay for her cousin’s desperately needed operation. But what starts as a science experiment ...more

Tracy Tam may believe in Santa, but she’s a reluctant believer in his magic. She’s certain everything has a scientific explanation—even Christmas, so on December 24th she sets out to gather evidence, samples and data to prove the science behind Christmas. If she’s succe

This was a short and sweet middle grade story that is bursting with Christmas spirit.

The main character, Tracy Tam, is a logical girl who not only believes that Santa isn't real--she's going to prove it and make enough money to help her cousin with an operation. But when Tracy sneaks into the back of Santa's sleigh, she finds that the North Pole isn't what she expected and nothing is what it seems.

I thought Tracy was a smart, tough girl who was clever but was so single minded she couldn't see th
