SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

There is going to be an Easter Egg Hunt in the park and Turkey and his friends want to go. They found out there would be a prize for whoever finds the special egg. Unfortunately, only children are allowed at the egg hunt. The animals decide they must come up with a disguise in order to take part in the egg hunt. Turkey’s friends help to disguise him as a rabbit, but a little girl discovers him at the egg hunt. Turkey tries other disguises, a daffodil and a bumblebee, but those don’t work out either.

Finally, Turkey and his friend decide to disguise him as an egg. When Max finds Turkey disguised as an egg, he brings him to the prize table. Farmer Jake knows what Turkey is doing, and lets both Max and Turkey choose a prize. Turkey is happy to win a pizza covered with jelly beans that he can share with his friends.
