About The Book

In this second adventure of the brand-new Mia Mayhem chapter book series, Mia learns to fly!

When Mia gets placed in a beginner’s flying class with kindergarteners, she struggles and is ready to give up! But luckily, with help from her best friend, Eddie, and the superschool’s most talented flier, Mia finally learns how to get off the ground.

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Mia Mayhem chapter books are perfect for emerging readers.


Mia Mayhem Learns to Fly! CHAPTER 1

Most cats like to lay in the sun or scratch at things or take naps.

But not my cat: Chaos is her name, and chaos is her game. On a typical afternoon, she’ll excitedly zoom around the kitchen, knock over a honey bottle, and then land right in the middle of it.

And as you can see, that’s exactly what just happened.

Chaos doesn’t really mean to cause trouble. And I should know. I have a bit of a reputation for causing chaos and mayhem myself.

Oh, I should probably explain before I go on. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mia Macarooney.

During the day, I attend Normal Elementary School. But as soon as the school bell rings, I’m Mia Mayhem—the world’s newest superhero!

For real. Yours truly has superpowers!

And guess what? I’m going to learn how to fly!

And that means when regular school ends, I head straight to the Program for In Training Superheroes aka the PITS! But today, my flying class was starting late, so I ran home to make a honey and peanut butter sandwich.

Sounds like a great idea, right?

I thought so too. But as you can see, things can get pretty sticky real fast if you have a curious cat like mine.

I may have superpowers, but cleaning a whole jar of honey off a crazy cat? That’s a job for a professional.

So I rushed Chaos over to my dad’s animal clinic.

About The Author

Kara West would love to be a superhero, mostly so she can ask squirrels what they’re so nervous about. She lives with her own cats, who, unlike Chaos, spend more time sleeping than causing trouble. Thank goodness.
