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 the State Science Fair, she can help her cousin to get the operation.

Along the way, Tracy encounters an almost zombie-like Santa Claus, evil elves, and a North Pole with no snow. And, where are the reindeer, for Pete’s sake? She’s very observant and gathers a lot of ‘proof’. Then she meets two adults at Santa Command who decide they will either need to wipe her mind clean (gasp!), or work with her to help her understand their mission. Phil is the Santa Command computer ‘techie’ and Beth manages the children’s wish lists. While they are in the hall being admonished by their boss, Tracy downloads some files from the computer – and now, it’s broken!

This was a very enjoyable read, even for an adult. The recommended age range is 9 – 12 (grade level 3 – 7). I loved that the author weaved in a few surprises and magic. Nothing is quite like it seems. All of the characters were remarkably fun – except for maybe the zombie-like Santa Claus. I rated Tracy Tam: Santa Command at 4 out of 5.
