Appearing as the Wizard of Books, Ron uses magical, musical tricks to encourage children to read. Volunteers perform illusions with offbeat instruments he conjures. Youngsters also learn about literary and historical wizards, including Merlin, Morgan le Fay and Harry Potter. The Harry Potter universe has inspired its own musical genre called wizard rock.
