Description

In this short story, Ozma and the Wizard (the same Wizard of the original story, though now he is being taught real magic) encounter three obnoxious imps, Imp Ertinent, Imp Udent, and Imp Olite. The imps cause much trouble, even after Ozma and the Wizard transform them into other creatures. Finally, Ozma and the Wizard decide to transform them into something inanimate, reasoning that they can't cause any trouble if they can't move. The three imps are transformed into coins, and Ozma decides they will remain in that state until they've learned their lesson.
