SCENE 3 cont'd Lionel has found Leona Lion, and she shows her a book about a moon, while their parents are awaken mentioning they should be in bed by now, Leona really wants to read the book and so they read the book. Then they learn a moral that you can get into trouble if you think only about what you want and don't watch what your'e doing while trying to get it. Leona cannot sleep because of the poor queen, so Lionel has a plan to save saying we will make up his own story about it featuring the queen and himself, but is jealous that Leona gets to stay up longer.
