NEW DR. SEUSS BOOK BEING PUBLISHED
More than 20 years after the death of Dr. Seuss — whose real name was Theodor Geisel — a new children’s book he wrote is being published, the first since his last book, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
Random House said yesterday (February 18th) that the book, called What Pet Should I Get?, will be published on July 28th.
It features the same brother and sister characters from Dr. Seuss’ One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.
Geisel’s widow, Audrey Geisel, found the manuscript soon after his death, but then put it aside.
It was rediscovered 22 years later in 2013 by her and by Geisel’s longtime secretary and friend, Claudia Prescott.
