When was the last time you remember a new Dr. Seuss book coming out? Well if you are over the age of 10 or 12 it probably doesn’t really interest you all that much. It’s not until you reach your late 20’s and early 30’s that this kind of stuff is awesome again. And thank goodness for that.
So when can we expect this to hit shelves? It’s looking like July. Until then you can check out Horton and the Kwuggerbug and Other Lost Stories, the actual last “new” Dr. Seuss book to come out.
The man him self, the giver of tongue twisting stories that inspired tens of millions of imaginations, Theodor Seuss Geisel. Nearly 24 years after he passed away his gift to so many continues to bear fruit.
What Pet Should I Get? is probably from around the years 1958 to 1962, so says Random House publishing associate director Cathy Goldsmith. It will be the 46th book from Dr. Seuss and will feature the brother and sister from another classic, “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.”
The best part about Dr. Seuss books is that they really are in a realm all to themselves. From the poems to the art, to the characters and the messages, there is really nothing that imitates a Dr. Seuss book and comes close. I think I still have my “My Book About Me.” It will look nice next to my copy of What Pet Should I Get?
What do you think about the new Seuss book? Awesome right? Every kid I know is getting a copy from me. Did Dr. Seuss every inspire you as kid? Let’s hear what you have to say!
