With this App you get over an hour of a wonderful narrated adventure story with music, pictures, songs and CGI animated videos – Rockford’s Rock Opera (Part One) – FREE!

This App is SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES (we originally RECOMMENDED it FOR 5 – 12 YEAR OLDS but, as you’ll see from our reviews, far younger children love the story and visuals).

Winner of the prestigious iPARENTING MEDIA AWARD, this is ‘original storytelling at its best’. A great musical story for kids which adults love too.

PLEASE NOTE. Due to the rich audio visual content of this App the initial download will need to be made while connected to WIFI or a computer. The content will then be fully downloaded and ready for enjoyment anywhere – in the car, on the train (no annoying glitches) and on holiday (no data roaming charges!). It’s quite a big file – but well worth the wait!

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


“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.

What’s Next?

The story continues, Rockford’s Rock Opera Parts 2, 3 and 4 are available now from the App Store (making up the whole story).
