The beloved children’s book author Theodor Seuss Geisel, known as Dr. Seuss, died in 1991, but he’s got a new book coming out in July. What Pet Should I Get? is believed to have been written between 1958 and 1962, and features the same brother and sister from the 1960 book One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.
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.
Random House announced the new book today, and said that two more new books from the discovered materials will come later.
