NEW DR SEUSS BOOK OUT SOON
Random House Children’s Books has increased its first printing on What Pet Should I Get?, a just discovered new picture book by the late Dr. Seuss, from 500,000 to 1 million. The book, which goes on sale July 28, was first announced in February, after the unpublished manuscript was rediscovered in 2013 by Seuss’s (Ted Geisel), widow, Audrey Geisel, and his longtime secretary and friend, Claudia Prescott.
“We were absolutely overjoyed to see the response to What Pet Should I Get? from every corner of the book world,” said Barbara Marcus, president and publisher of RHCB. “A new book by a publishing legend like Dr. Seuss is an extraordinary event, and we are delighted to announce an increased first printing to 1 million copies, to match the incredible support and pre-orders we are seeing.
The book features the brother and sister characters from Seuss’s One Fish Two Fish Red Fish, who attempt to choose a pet.
