Nasr-ed-Din Hodja is leading his donkeys with freshly ground wheat to the town of Ak Shekir. How many donkeys are there?  First there are nine donkeys, then there are eight! When Hodja stops to count again, the lost donkey is back. What's going on? Silly Hodja doesn't get it, but by the end of the story, wise readers will be counting correctly.
