Random House announced yesterday that it will publish What pet should I get? which features the brother and sister from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. The manuscript and sketches were found in a box along with the original materials for at least two other books. Random House will announce the publication dates for the other new releases later.
Dr. Seuss’s widow, Audrey Geisel, set the box aside after her husband’s death in 1991, during a renovation of their home. She and a longtime friend recently rediscovered the box, explaining in a statement to Random House: “Ted always worked on multiple projects and started new things all the time — he was constantly drawing and coming up with ideas for new stories.”
What fantastic news for fans of Dr. Seuss.
