SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

As the townspeople are preparing for their Thanksgiving feast, they suddenly realize there are no turkeys in sight. They come up with a plan to lure the turkeys into town by advertising for a “model” turkey to pose for their arts and crafts fair. When Pete the turkey arrives he seems perfect for the job. They plan to use him as their model and when they are finished, he will become their Thanksgiving feast. However, Pete is much more clever than the townspeople expect. He finds a way to outsmart them and makes his escape leaving nothing but shredded wheat to eat for the Thanksgiving feast.
