The Sat isn't allowed to do anything! So it spends its days being bored while Mr Taschenbier is at work. Through the window, it spies a couple of children clambering aboard a dragon.

Who is Nasreddin Hodja?
Since the 15th century, there have been numerous stories in circulation about this Oriental prankster who ranks with Germany’s Till Eulenspiegel as a famous fool. Hodja tells gigantic whoppers; he is a confidence trickster and philosopher, whimsical and always ready with a piece of profound wisdom. Paul Maar retells some of the famous Nasreddin stories and has written some new ones, too – about modern-day pranksters who reveal us all to be at least as foolish as they seem themselves. A charmingly illustrated gem for people with a mind of their own.
