Here's what people are saying...

"For years I've distributed Christmas presents of Peter and the Wolf to small children starting flute/clarinet/piano lessons. This year I'm breaking new ground with this thoroughly modern musical for kids about a boy called Moog and a dog called Rockford...

Ingenious story, foot-tapping music and three booklets containing not just the lyrics so you can all sing along, but lots of quirky pictures of strange animals, sci-fi scenery, Battersea power station and other stuff that children think about while practising arpeggios."

"Rockford's Rock Opera is an amazing mix of story, songs and sound effects. It has a freshness that makes you smile as you listen and could become a cult favourite as beloved as Wallace and Gromit."

Christina Hardyment (The Times)


"Magical rock-opera stories feature Battersea boy Moog and his dog Rockford in the land of Infinity. Sounds fey, but the exploration of ecological themes is serious and also inventive fun. Part 1 can be sampled as a free download and the website alone is a resource worth browsing."

"...I am sure that this CD set will become as popular as the traditional tales of Peter and the Wolf. It is suitable for both children and adults and the three CD's combined amount to 2 1/2 hours of story and song, perfect for a long car journey.
The recording is of a very high quality with story telling and songs being enhanced by sound effects giving listeners the entire experience. There are parts of the story that I think will be more relevant to older listeners, giving the hidden message of there being hope in all situations, but children will enjoy the CD's for the story telling.
This is a perfect gift for a family, where children are of varying ages - the younger children will enjoy the music, older children will enjoy the story and adults the whole package."
