Summary

Can a budding young scientist protect the ancient secrets of a saint whilst saving his family from a terrible hidden danger?

Oliver Winter has the January blues. His sister hates him, his parents are always at work, and his keen mind sees through every fairy tale he was ever told. But one night, a mysterious stranger taps at his bedroom window and blows his world apart. Recruited by Enzo, a top agent of the mysterious Order of St. Nicholas, Oliver solemnly promises to do good, all year round.

It seems, though, that not all children have the right stuff. When older sister Megan falls under the spell of the sinister Arthur MacGregor, sworn to discredit and destroy the Order, the entire Winter family are drawn into a perilous adventure. If Oliver and Enzo can’t stop MacGregor’s misfit band, a disturbing twisting of technology threatens to shatter the world.

The Science of Santa Claus is the first book in the incredible saga of the Winter Family. If you know a curious youngster who loves real-world science and cool technology and if you want to inspire family fun and further learning, then get on board.

Great Seasonal Sci-Fi Fantasy

This was a really fun sci-fi twist on the story of Saint Nicholas. This is geared towards older elementary age kids due to the discussion of Santa being real or not. When reading the history of St. Nicholas it says that alien contact may have played a roll in his seemed immortality. My 14 year old son listened to this story and thoroughly enjoyed it and is looking forward to the next book in the series. This is not just a Christmas time read, we highly recommend it! —I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
