exceedingly clever things. They know their numbers as well as any scholar, and have a gift for merchant trade, as well. The Phrontistery even employs some to keep their books. In fact, there's a funny story about that. For no more than a dodo egg
, the gluttonous things will even let me stick a—Oooh! Nevermind that last part."
