A new Dr Seuss book is to be published in July, following the discovery of a box of manuscript and sketches in the La Jolla, the California home of the much celebrated children’s author Ted Geisel.
RandomHouse Children’s Books announced on Wednesday that What Pet Should I Get? will be published on July 28, 2015.
At least two more books will be published from matieral found in the same box of manuscripts, though their titles have not yet been disclosed.
The box filled with pages of text and sketches was found shortly after Geisel’s death in 1991 by his widow Audrey Geisel.
At the time, the box was set aside with other of Geisel’s materials, and was not rediscovered until more than two decade later, in late 2013 by Mrs Geisel and Claudia Prescott, Geisel’s longtime secretary and friend, when they were cleaning out his office space.
