Take a first look at the new kids’ book by ROB and PATRICIA SCHNEIDER and FRANCISCO HERRERA!
You don’t know what you’re good at til you try…
At the Gamble Ranch, all of the animals have a special talent. All of them except for Centurion and Emperador, two baby horses delivered by a couple of confused storks lost in a storm. When the ranch owners decide they’ll grow up to be race horses, Centurion and Emperador do their best to be the best. But what they prove to be best at is quite different from racing…
Actor-comedian ROB SCHNEIDER and his wife, actress-writer PATRICIA SCHNEIDER, bring this adorable story about finding your passion to bookstores this October in their first kids’ book, CENTURION & EMPERADOR! Vibrantly illustrated by Disney and Marvel artist FRANCISCO HERRERA, this fun storybook tells the story of two horses who love to dance, based on the real-life dancing horses of the Gamble Ranch!
Rescued from abuse, the real-life CENTURION was taken in by George and Nancy Gamble, who cared for him lovingly at their Napa County ranch, only to discover his innate ability to… well, shake it.
As Rob recalls: “In show business you always hear about a guy who can do this or that, so when Nancy called me to come see her new dancing horse, while always pleased to spend time with Nancy and George, I didn’t expect much. I arrived to witness the James Brown of four legged animals. Centurion just loves to ‘shake it’ and literally dances his heiny off!”
Soon joined by fellow four-legged hoofer, EMPERADOR, the two have made quite a name for themselves, performing at events around Northern California, including several charity events.
The CENTURION & EMPERADOR book is their first story of encouragement, but certainly won’t be their last!
