“Dr. Seuss” creating sketches for “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” in 1957.

Dr. Seuss may have passed away in 1991 at the age of 87, but that doesn’t stop his long-lost books from popping up, and now the newly discovered What Pet Should I Get? will be published this summer!

Dr. Seuss, whose real name is Theodor “Ted” Seuss Geisel, is one of the most well-known American writers and cartoonists. He published 46 children’s books with wacky characters and catchy rhymes, like the classic The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and The Lorax.

The imaginative works of Dr. Seuss inspired 11 TV specials, four major films, four TV series, and even a Broadway musical! He also won two Academy Awards, the Pulitzer Prize, a Peabody Award, and two Emmy Awards, and has a Hollywood Walk of Fame star.

The newfound Seuss book turned up in the author’s home back in 2013, when his widow, Audrey Geisel, and his secretary found pages and pages of writing and sketches.
