2015 is shaping up to be a year full of surprises for the publishing industry. First, we had the announcment of a new novel from Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman, which she wroteprior to her first and only novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, but set aside. More than 50 years later, it was rediscovered, and will see an initial print run of 2 million copies.
Few things could top a new Harper Lee novel, but recent news that a new book from one of the most beloved children’s authors of all time will be published is easily just as huge. A long-lost Dr. Seuss book has been discovered by the late author’s widow, Audrey, and will be published later this year.
What Pet Should I Get? That’s the name of the “new” book, which was probably written sometime between 1958-1962. The main characters are the same twins in Dr. Seuss’ One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, which was published in 1960. The brother and sister visit the pet store and have a hard time choosing just one pet to take home with them. Publisher Random House Children’s Books said the story “captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment – choosing a pet,” in a release.
The manuscript for the book was found in 2013 by his widow and secretary in the author’s home in La Jolla, California. Random House plans to release at least two more Seuss books from additional materials that were uncovered. What Pet Should I Get? Will be released on July 28, 2015.
Dr. Seuss’ real name was Theodor Geisel. He died in 1991 at the age of 87.
