Summary

Lost on Infinity is a dramatised audiobook adventure like no other.

Created by writer Steve Punt and musician Matthew Sweetapple, this is a unique, magical, award-winning musical story for all ages.

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 ones 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, Lost on Infinity, the first adventure from Rockford's Rock Opera, is a tale about extinction. But it’s a hopeful story that shows that even the smallest creatures, and humans, can make the biggest difference. 

An award-winning, psychedelic, spell-binding, thought-provoking 21st century adventure!

For All Ages - children and adults.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A must-listen for families in lockdown

With three children to entertain on a wet, grey afternoon, we turned to Lost on Infinity for some relaxation and escapism. Little did we realise we were about to embark upon an absolute gem. We ended up planning a complete home school project around the book because all three children were so captivated by the plot, characters and music. We already have an interest in the environment, and this production bought the topic to life and led to some fascinating discussions around the dinner (and homework) table! We enjoyed the themes of one person / animal having the power to make a difference - I'm sure we all question how much difference we can make as individuals from time to time. As a family of animal lovers (is it only me or were the cats and dogs listening attentively too?!), the messages were clear, but entertaining and with just the right mix of being serious, humorous, moving and well paced. This is a brilliant quality production with outstanding performances. As a child I loved musicals and it was a delight to indulge in a modern one and to be able to share that experience as a family.

Perfect home schooling audiobook & lesson plans

Forgot about lost on infinity until I came across it on audible, if you have kids and want to stimulate their brain with something worthwhile, safe, and away from sm, introduce them to rockford, they'll love the storyline, brilliant melodic music, and get hooked on a storyline that covers friendship, pets, animals, extinction and biodiversity. not just a brilliant audiobook, you can download proper curriculum lesson plans used by schools and perfect for home schooling. totally recommended

Brilliant story best I’ve heard in ages

We have been trying to listen to books or podcasts whilst cooking and eating dinner and this has kept us gripped!


It is a brilliant adventure story suitable for all ages and is honestly a brilliant story for smaller ears or the bigger and older ears amongst us.
Lost on Infinity is the first adventure from Rockford's Rock Opera and it is a tale about change and extinction within our planet. It is a story about hope and trying to explain and show that even the smallest creatures or humans, can make the biggest difference. 
This is a key point for me especially now a days due to trying to reach people about climate change and how we can help reduce the effects. 

Moog who is from Battersea in London, and lives with Rockford his dog are relatable and likeable within the style of the story. They are a character who you not only love but would love to be like. Their adventures sound like all children's dream days out. 
The combination of narration, sound effects, acting and music allows it to remain engaging no matter how times it is played and heard. 
The combination of how it's been created has meant it is great for longer car journeys as I have found with many stories it can drag but this one keeps you engaged throughout.

My 7 Year Old Loved It

I listened to this a chapter at a time with my 7 year old daughter and we both loved it. The songs are brilliant and the quality of the production is brilliant. I was pleased to find that the songs are available to listen to via the Rockford’s Rock Opera apps. The audio book has a clear message about the importance of protecting animals from extinction. I'd highly recommend it for car journeys.

Amazing story - immersive experience

This has been a firm favourite with our daughters for quite some time - we previously owned on it CD but the disc now skips and it is great to now be able to enjoy this wonderful story within the audible app. It is funny and yet has a serious environmental message. The combination of narration, acting, sound effects and music make it incredibly engaging and means it stands up well to repeated listening. It is great listening for long journeys for children and adults alike. The story moves on in Part 2 - The King of Nowhere, and the second installment might be even better than the first.

For Family Entertainment – Fantastic

Great story with some brilliant performances and songs. Not at all what you might expect from a children's story (genuinely moving and funny too) so good for the car. Must have listened to this 100 times and never tired of it. If yr looking for something to get the family through the holidays (and traffic jams) you should give this a go.

Wonderful Story

Downloaded this for my son for bedtime. Didn’t know what to expect at first but it’s really special - a really original dramatic story and some excellent songs too. Our son is 7 but I have to admit I think I enjoy this as much as he does. Well worth discovering.
