“Why, for the love of Merlin, is this considered a fun kid’s project?” asked Ron Weasley. He pulled a strip of paper out of the globby, gooey container and slapped it onto the globe propped in front of him and his daughter.
“It’s called papier-mâché, daddy, and it is fun!” exclaimed his daughter, Rose, as she carefully smoothed out the lumps on her globe.
Taking out his wand, Ron said, “There’s a spell I can use—”
“No! No magic!” Rose held out her arms protectively around her project.
Resigned to his situation, Ron grabbed another sticky strip of paper.
