The world of ""Like the Lion's Tooth"" is a world of children, specifically children who find themselves the almost unknowing victims of their parents' savagery or obliviousness or simply misguided love. They have come together at a school for ""problem children"" on the banks of the Hudson not far from New York, where, under the well-intentioned but heavy-handed guidance of the staff, they are learning to cope.
