James Solheim

eBook - 2004

Warning: Top Secret! You're probably wondering about this Santa guy. Who is he, and how does he keep track of billions of children around the world? Well, I've got the answer. In fact, I've got the answer to almost any question about Santa's secrets you could ask. When Stevie decides that he doesn't believe in Santa Claus, he's in for a big surprise! Santa and his elves, eight flying reindeer, and Harry W. Throckmorton the Dancing Cow show Stevie that there's m...ore to Christmas than he thinks. There's Gift Fulfillment Centers, a string of satellites called PSSSSSST (Papa Santa's Super-Secret Satellite Team), and a Spacetime Scruncher. But even more importantly, Stevie discovers that Santa is more than just satellites and science.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

You can't keep a good legend down-at least when it comes to Santa. A young skeptic named Stevie joins the ranks of Virginia and others who have questioned Old Saint Nick's existence. With confidence and a tongue-in-cheek flair, Solheim (It's Disgusting-and We Ate It!) delivers some answers-mostly scientific, of course-that dispel Stevie's doubts. Gott's (the Horace Splattley series) spiffy computer-generated pieces contain oodles of humorous touches. Ages 5-8. (Oct.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 1-3-When a cynical boy named Stevie appears on national television denouncing that Santa is a fake, he is swooped up by the jolly old gent and given a grand tour of his operations, including Santa Industries (headquartered in Cleveland), where they "track worldwide naughtiness," and the North Pole. After witnessing the high-tech tools that allow Santa to shrink and to travel backward and forward in time, Stevie finally can't help but believe what his eyes tell him. Even more amazing is when Santa demonstrates true magic by knowing (without being told) exactly what the eight-year-old has been hoping for. Kids who have grown out of warm-and-fuzzy Christmas books will enjoy this wisecracking approach to the holiday. The cartoon artwork is loaded with funny, if not hugely imaginative, details.-E. M.

Review by Publisher Summary 1

After Stevie tells a reporter that he does not believe in Santa Claus, Santa himself pays him a visit, takes him to the North Pole to show him his operation, and proves that he uses magic as well as science.
