"The ideal starting point for every student of Transfiguration."
—Advert at Flourish and Blotts.[src]

A Beginner's Guide to Transfiguration is a text book on Transfiguration by Emeric Switch. It was a required textbook for Transfiguration classes for first[1] and second year[2] students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. A copy of this book costs 1 Galleon at Flourish and Blotts.[3]



Before Ginny Weasley's first year at Hogwarts, Lucius Malfoy managed to slip Tom Riddle's diary into her second-hand copy of the book in Flourish and Blotts, leading to the re-opening of the Chamber of Secrets in that term.[2]
