You can turn a ST 16 barbarian into a mouse, .... .

Wizards turned into animals remember their spells, but can't cast any because most animals can't talk. A wizard turned into a parrot can still talk, so she can cast spells. If the perch in her cage just happens to be her Staff, she could still draw on the staff mana too.
This sounds much of how I would run it in my games. I try to play it also as if the Wizard's new for can speak or seemingly make meaningful gestures, then they could cast - taking in consideration of the Gestures and Incantations rules on p.142.

Thanks everyone for your inputs.
