Titled What Pet Should I Get, the new manuscript was discovered by Dr. Seuss’ (Theodor Seuss Geisel) widow Audrey and longtime friend and secretary Claudia Prescott whilst cleaning the author’s office in 2013. The manuscript and accompanying original illustrations will be published by Random House Children’s Book this July.
The book features the same sibling duo from One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish (published in 1960) and Cathy Goldsmith, Random House’s associate publishing director, estimates the new book was penned between 1958 and 1962. But there’s more, much more, in fact. The complete manuscript was only one among many other notes and drawings rediscovered. Random House is already predicting two more “new” Dr. Seuss books to be released from the find.
