Pepi and his family lived in Egypt a long time ago.  His father was an artist who had been hired to paint the tomb of of prince.  The prince wasn't dead yet but wanted to have the pyramid ready when the time came.  Pepi's father was a good painter but he needed a model to really do a good job.  Getting a goose wasn't a problem.  But when it came time to paint lions, he tried to paint from memory.  But Pepi has an idea.  And a special gift that will help his father.
