At the White House each Thanksgiving, a turkey gets pardonned. In the picture book Turkey Trouble, a turkey also tries to escape the dinner table. In the sequel, Turkey Claus, a turkey heads to the North Pole seeking Santa's help to escape being served on a platter on Christmas Day. He hails a taxi and reaches the North pole on Christmas Eve day. But it's not easy to get an appointment with Santa the day before Christmas. Turkey Claus dons a series of costumes to sneak in to see Santa: a pylon with Christmas lights (tree), a reindeer pulling two snowmen, a candy cane, a Mrs. Claus costume, and a Christmas present. Finally, Santa agrees to see him. He dresses him in a Santa suit, sending him with a pizza for the hungry family he was fleeing.
