It is almost Thanksgiving and turkey is getting worried. Instead of waiting to become dinner, the turkey decides to disguise himself as the other animals because surely Farmer Jake won't eat any of them for Thanksgiving. Then by the end of the book, he is hiding in the garden and gets an idea. He disguises himself as a pizza delivery man!
