About the Book

Title: Tracy Tam - Santa Command
Author: Krystalyn Drown
Publication Date: October 22, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC

Synopsis: Tracy doesn’t believe that Santa can deliver all of those presents in one night with out a little help from science. A flying sleigh can only be powered by jet engines, and Santa’s magical abilities can only be the result of altered DNA. In order to test her theories, she sneaks onto Santa’s sleigh and ends up at Santa Command, the place where a team of humans monitors Santa’s big night.

When Tracy attempts to hack into their computers, she accidentally introduces a virus to their system. As a result, three states get knocked out of sync with the rest of the world. Before the night is over, Tracy has to fix time and help Santa finish his deliveries. And she has to do it all with Santa’s magic, which she doesn’t believe exists.

 Krystalyn's Top Ten Christmas Movies

I love Christmas movies and can often be found watching them at every time of year. Here are some of my favorites.

A Muppet Christmas Carol – This was a brilliant TV special. Sadly, several songs were cut out of the DVD release due to copyright issues.

A Muppet Family Christmas – I watch this movie every year on Christmas Eve just to hear the song “One More Sleep Til Christmas” on the right day.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever – A young Fairuza Balk stars in a perfect retelling of a perfect book.

A Charlie Brown Christmas – Charlie Brown is my hero.

Elmo Saves Christmas – It's narrated by Maya Angelou. Need I say more?

Eloise at Christmastime – The Eloise movies are pretty great adaptations of the books. Plus they star Julie Andrews as Nanny.

Elf – I love the references to the old Rankin Bass specials

All of the Rankin Bass specials – These signified Christmas to me when I was a child. Frosty the Snowman, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Twas the Night Before Christmas.

Prancer – Just like Tracy Tam, all you have to do is believe.

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular – I discovered this a couple of years ago on Netflix. While it's not really a movie, it's so much fun.

Whether they are old or new, animated or live action, all of these have special places in my heart, and every one is guaranteed to put me in the Christmas spirit.
