Some of our Reviews

"This smartly-written, artistically-composed musical story has children as its target but adults as its bulls-eye. Upgrades the basic children’s storybook to the 21st century, without losing the magic." WIRED magazine

"Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' meets 'Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds', 'Jungle Book' meets 'Jurassic Park' via Sgt. Pepper!" Audiobook Review

"Such an Ingenious story." The Guardian

The Story

Far away in the Sea of Tranquility is the Island of Infinity, home to the world’s lost creatures. Infinity has a secret for the world but Moog, a boy from Battersea in London, and Rockford his dog, are the only one who can deliver its message. Travelling to Infinity, Moog and Rockford are drawn into an adventure that threatens the entire human race.

At its heart, Rockford’s Rock Opera is a tale about extinction and ecology. But it’s a hopeful story that shows that the smallest creatures, and humans, can make the biggest difference.

An award-winning, psychedelic, spell-binding, thought provoking 21st Century read-along adventure!

GREAT for ALL AGES – children and adults.
