Pizza on Earth - Turkey Claus

If you loved the book Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano then you will love the sequel
Turkey Claus by Wendi Silvano.

Turkey survived Thanksgiving but finds trouble again by becoming Christmas dinner!

Turkey overheard Farmer Jake and his wife discussing Christmas dinner and how nice it would be to have a turkey dinner.

Oh, no! Turkey decides he needs help. So he sets out to find Santa and ask for help.  But Santa is too busy.

Turkey uses his clever disguises to get to Santa. He dresses up as a Christmas tree, reindeer, candy cane, and even Mrs. Claus.

Finally Turkey gets to see Santa. Santa gives Turkey the perfect disguise and some good advice.

Turkey dresses up like Santa and delivers pizza, Gobblers Pizza. The Farmer and his wife agree, pizza is the best.

The story ends with "Pizza on Earth."
