Just when you thought you'd seen all there is to see by legendary children's book writer and illustrator Dr Seuss, another never-before-seen picture book hits the shelves.
What Pet Should I Get?
The story and illustrations for What Pet Should I Get? were put together by Dr Seuss in the 1950s, yet the story remained undiscovered until 2013, after a clear out of his office space.
The book remains true to Seuss' style; zany characters introduced by way of rhyming poems, which make up a story to inspire children's minds.
What Pet Should I Get? follows the tale of two siblings, as they go in search of the ideal family companion at the pet store (a common practice some 50 years ago). With so many animals to choose, which pet will they pick to take home?
In Seuss' latest publication, he addresses how sometimes it is hard to make up your mind, particularly when you have a short space of time.
Once you reach the end of What Pet Should I Get?, you are left to wonder whether the choice is of the feathery kind, fur or scales. Let your kid's imagination do the rest.
Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr Seuss, you will know from top-selling titles The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. The best-selling author published his very first children's book in 1937, and went on to sell over 650 million books around the world. Theodor Seuss Geisel lived to the age of 87, leaving a legacy of incredible tales to inspire generations.
What Pet Should I Get? pays homage to the beloved children's book author, with personal photographs of Theodor Seuss Geisel, and the story of his own love of pets covered in 8 pages at the back of the book.
