When Aisja stands in front of the sultan's palace, she sees a man leaving through a side door. Aisja tells him what the people say about the sultan: that he never listens to the poor, that he only invites sweet talkers and artists... Back in his palace the sultan (that's who the man was) thinks about what Aisja has told him and turns his life around.
A beautiful fairytale about a simple girl and a conceited sultan. The illustrations add to the oriental atmosphere.
