Mysteries seem to follow Lark and Connor Ba wherever they go, and today is no exception! The part-time detectives head to their local community theater to rehearse the play they are in, only to discover that someone is playing pranks on the theater company. The twin sleuths need to work quickly to catch the culprit before one more prank closes down the play for good. It's showtime, Lark and Connor!

Lark Takes a Bow is the third title in the Lark Ba Detective series, following Lark Holds the Key and Lark and the Diamond Caper.

"Like any good mystery, the book offers a list of suspects, red herrings, organized clues, and a moment of truth…As a multiethnic detective, Lark's authentic success at sleuthing ensures her a place at the chapter-book table."
