There's a New Dr. Seuss Book Coming in July

A new book from Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, is being published posthumously on July 28.

The forgotten treasure is called What Pet Should I Get? and follows the children from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish as they try to choose a pet.

The manuscript was discovered in a box at Geisel's San Diego home shortly after his death in 1991 and set aside. In 2013, Geisel’s widow, Audrey, and his secretary and friend, Claudia Prescott, sorted through the box and found it, along with several other mysterious works. They suspect the nearly-completed work was written sometime between 1958 and 1962.

If a book about pet shopping doesn't tickle you, Random House also plans to release two more unearthed works sometime in the future.
