Small Child to Rat is a Transforming spell that turns a small child into a rat. This spell is covered in the Transfiguration course at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The wand movement consists of waving the wand once.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Only the theory of this spell is covered in the first year, as human transfiguration is one of the most difficult forms of transfiguration and its practical use is not taught until the sixth year.
