Acclaim for Rockford’s Rock Opera
Despite the name, this isn’t not operatic music, or rock music either. It’s like nothing you’ve ever heard before...
The Guardian Newspaper compared Rockford’s Rock Opera to a 21st Century Peter and the Wolf, and children and adults all over the world tell us Rockford’s Rock Opera sounds like nothing else!
“Rockford Rocks!!!” TOM (aged 8)
“A brilliant, original story. An educational, thought provoking and original kid’s audio book app. My children (5 and 11) absolutely love it!” APP REVIEW
“Magical.” THE OBSERVER
“Wonderful musical entertainment for all ages.” THE WORLD WILDLIFE FUND (WWF)
What’s the Story About?
Far away in the Sea of Tranquillity is the Island of Infinity, home to the last one of every extinct species. Here, beneath a mystical swirling sky, live the world’s lost creatures. The creatures have a secret, but a boy called Moog and a dog called Rockford are the one ones who can deliver their message and save the world.
An Educational Ecological Musical!
Rockford’s Rock Opera is story about extinction backed by credible environmental organizations, but it’s also a tale of hope and happiness.
Created by Elaine and Matthew Sweetapple and written by BBC comedian, Steve Punt, Rockford's Rock Opera is supported by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). They said;
"Rockford's Rock Opera is a thought provoking and heart warming story that not only provides wonderful, musical entertainment for all ages, but also highlights environmental issues in an engaging way."
Rockford's Rock Opera is also recommended in education, in schools, by teachers for those learning English (including English as a foreign language students) and music, ‘green issues’ and for children learning about nature, ecology and extinction.
The story continues, Rockford’s Rock Opera Parts 2, 3 and 4 are available now from the App Store (making up the whole story).

Wonderful story. Thank you. We have bought parts 2-4 and our daughters love them all. Some quotes from the target market: "it is brilliant fantastic amazing. Give it as many stars as possible" Lauren aged nearly 7. "It was brilliant marvellous" Zoe aged 4. The story and characters are fun and educational and the kids love joining in with the songs and singing them when not using the app. Thank you to all involved in making this story.
Just reinstalled this fantastic app after swapping my phone. Yet again I'm amazed that this isn't world famous. A Fantastic story. So refreshing to find a children's app that isn't packed with ads and in app purchases! A real gem.
Absolutely wonderful music and stories that appeal to all ages!!! My youngest child (age 2) loves the animation and beautiful illustrations, my middle child (age 4) loves the songs, and my oldest child (age 7) loves the storyline, and I love it all!!! It truly has something for everyone!!!!
