"An indispensable guide to your basic magical needs."
—Description[src]

The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 1 is the first book in The Standard Book of Spells series, written by Miranda Goshawk. It is a required textbook for first year students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]

Known contents

Charm''s differ from Transfiguring Spells in the following manner: a charm adds certain properties to an object or creature, whereas a transfiguring spell will change it into something utterly different.

The lesser charms are not very difficult to break and many of those that you learn as a young wizard will wear off in a matter of days or even hours.

Dark charms are known as jinxes, hexes and curses. This book does not deal with such spells.

Lapses in concentration while charming can result in painful side effects – remember Wizard Baruffio, who said ‘s’ instead of ‘f’ and found himself lying on the floor with a buffalo on his chest.

Some charms will be ineffective on large creatures such as trolls, whose hides repel all but the more powerful spells.
