I liked this one, it was cute. I did not realise it was MG until I had started it. But yes I do saw that it was MG when Bee steals something and instead of being angry everyone is worried and helps her ;)
It was a fun tale to listen to. Bee has run away and finds a new home with a baker as his apprentice. And she discovers she has magic when she bakes. She makes friends and all is well.
The constant baking made me hungry, so much yumminess!
But there is a darker side to this story too *coughs* well dark and dark. There is an evil mage and Bee must help someone take him down.
So Bee gets to have quite the adventure with dangers, magic and all things I can not mention cos there goes the plot.
But all in all, a really fun little story that everyone can listen too. It never felt too young. It felt like a fairytale.

As you can see it was a full cast. Sure, that works. But did it make it better? I am so used to one person narrating so this was kind of strange. It took me a while to get used to. I did like it, but at the same time, one person narrating is fine too.
Also I have NO idea who did what so I can't say anything about individual performances
