Publisher's Summary

If you could go back in time to witness any concert from all of history, what would it be? Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock? Mozart in the Salzburg court? The Beatles’ rooftop farewell? 

Jukebox Joyride follows 12-year-old twins Jules and George on a wild adventure through time. Their Uncle Bob, a renowned ethnomusicologist (he studies music!), has discovered the secret to time travel and is having a ball joyriding through history checking out the best concerts ever...but something’s gone wrong! A sinister force has been unleashed, someone is chasing after Uncle Bob, and the fate of all music hangs in the balance! 

Now, it’s up to Jules and George to find their uncle before their new rival does! It’s a musical adventure that brings the twins from the birth of jazz in New Orleans to a performance by an 11- year-old Mozart in Vienna, all while trying to make it back to the present day to pass their history test!

Fantastic for the whole family!

Musical historical fiction for kids?! Yes, please! We got this audiobook because our whole family loves the Pop Ups albums, and it did not disappoint. Upon finishing it our kids promptly requested to listen to it again... and again. The story and the performances are fun, interesting, and entertaining, and I love the historical fiction elements. We started it on a long drive, and when we arrived where we were going, we all sat in the car for 15 minutes because we wanted to know what was going to happen next. :) I highly recommend this audiobook for ages 3 - 99!

My son and daughter loved it. They actually only wanna listen to this everytime we get in the car. I don't mind either cause I enjoy it too. It's a wonderful journey thru musical history. The characters are fun and the story had my smiling and almost crying with joy. It had me on the edge of my seat all the way till the end.. I look forward to more from these guys.

Awesome, amazing audiobook!

Our family just started listening to this audiobook today and we love it! So many great characters and a fantastic introduction for kids to so many different musical styles. Our five year old was listening so attentively to every word over breakfast this morning. We can’t wait to finish it!

great condition listen

I felt as if I was watching the story live in person. The story was entretaining and keeped me listening. The story incorporates sounds from the bicycle tires turning, to guitar, and music. I sometimes found myself looking for the location of the sound around me and realizing it was coming from the audio book. Loved it! Great listen with kids too.
