Between the Lions opens up a world of literature and learning for children aged four to seven. Each episode centers on a book or other written material that Theo and Cleo and their cubs, Lionel and Leona, and their friends discover in the library. Some of their friends are Click the Mouse, the library’s cyborg communications expert; Cliff Hanger, a swashbuckling comic book hero who escapes from sticky situations through quick thinking and literacy skills; Tiger Words, a multi-talented sports figure who plays with vowels and consonants instead of golf balls and tees; Martha Reads and the Vowelles, a rhythm and blues group that sings only vowel sounds; and the stalwart knights of “Gawain’s World” whose jousting matches create words instead of wounds.
