Episode Summary

The Roar That Makes Them Run
Lionel and Leona visit a website about wild animals. This website teaches them that lions have a mighty roar --- a "roar that makes them run." Realizing that they have never heard their father Theo's roar before, they beg to hear it, but Theo cautions that it's not suited for a library. He demonstrates a number of other roars, but Lionel and Leona are not satisfying. They being to worry that their father does not have a mighty roar, or worse, isn't even a lion at all.moreless
