President Abraham Lincoln's youngest son, Tad, is very fond of Jack the turkey. He has tamed him and taught him tricks, and the bird follows him all around the White House yard. But Jack was meant to be the main dish of the first official Thanksgiving celebration. Tad doesn't want his pet to be eaten for dinner, not even for a day as special as Thanksgiving! Can he convince his father to save Jack's life?
