There is no "transforming" to an different paper size. Rather, your
text will be typeset according to the paper size you choose for the
respective LaTeX run.

Class option a5paper should suffice. You may also try the KOMA-Script
replacement for book.cls called scrbook which should already be
installed on an up-to-date TeX system, otherwise get it from CTAN:


Please don't use olden style files such as a4.sty or a5.sty because
these are obsolete. See l2tabu.pdf for details available from CTAN,
