Can these sleuths find the prankster before someone (actually) breaks a leg?

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.

Award-winning author Natasha Deen loves stories: exciting ones, scary ones and, especially, funny ones! As a kid of two countries (Guyana and Canada), she feels especially lucky because she gets a double dose of stories. When she's not working on her books or visiting schools, she spends a lot of time trying to convince her dogs and cats that she's the boss of the house.For more information, visit and follow her on Twitter and Instagram @natasha_deen.
