Random House US to publish ‘discovered’ Dr Seuss book

Random House US has announced it will publish a recently ‘discovered’ picture book by Ted Geisel aka Dr Seuss on 28 July, reports Publishers Weekly. The book, entitled What Pet Should I Get?, features the siblings who appeared in Dr Seuss’ One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish as they attempt to choose a pet. Random House said in a statement that the work was found by Geisel’s widow Audrey Geisel and his longtime secretary Claudia Prescott in 2013, and that two or more books derived from the found work will also be released. Several Dr Seuss books have been published since Geisel’s death in 1991, including the collections The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories in 2011 and Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories in 2014.
