This is a sixteen-page colored pamphlet designed as a premium to accompany Chick-fil-A kids meals. This first set of five booklets in 2004 was followed by another set of five in 2005. Between the Lions is apparently a TV series featuring lions reading stories. They appear on the photographic pages 2, 3, and 16 to frame the story as Papa lion reads to his cubs. Hector Hare does chores like washing the dishes so quickly that his mother has to ask him to do it again. Tommy the Tortoise, by contrast, is slow and careful. Hector first suggests the race. Ritzy Raccoon interviews the two contestants before, during, and after the race. During the race, Hector does cartwheels and handsprings, signs autographs, and has a snack. The finish is very close, but Tommy can stick his neck out just enough--as in Disney's presentations.
