But we have to pick ONE pet
And pick it out soon.
You know mother told us
To get back by noon!
If that cadence sounds familiar, but you can’t place the words, don’t be alarmed.
That phrase is from a new — that’s right, new — Dr. Seuss book scheduled to be released in July.
More than 20 years after his death in 1991, a box filled with text and sketches will come to life in the latest creation by Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss: “What Pet Should I Get?”
The story “captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment — choosing a pet,” publisher Random House Children’s Books said in a release.
Geisel’s widow, Audrey Geisel, found the manuscripts and illustrations in their La Jolla, California, home soon after her husband died. She set the materials aside, only to rediscover them in 2013 while cleaning out his office.
“While undeniably special, it is not surprising to me that we found this because Ted always worked on multiple projects and started new things all the time,” Audrey Geisel said in the release.
The publisher said it expects to release two additional books from the materials that were found.
