Your Heart is About to Grow 3 Sizes: Dr. Seuss Has a New Book Coming Out

Oh, the places you’ll go… even when you died nearly 25 years ago.

Despite having passed away in 1991, it turns out the good Dr. Seuss is still capable of creating magic in children’s lives.

According to, when Audrey Geisel, the widow of Theodor “Ted” Seuss Geisel, “was remodelling her home after his death, she found a box filled with pages of text and sketches and set it aside with some of her husband’s other materials. It was rediscovered 22 years later, in the fall of 2013, by Audrey Geisel and Claudia Prescott — Ted Geisel’s long-time secretary and friend – when they were cleaning out his office space.

And now we’re all going to get to read What Pet Should I Get?

Both manuscript and sketches are pure Seuss, and Random House is looking at a release date of July 28, 2015.

Likely composed between 1958 and 1962, What Pet Should I Get? stars the same sister and brother duo found in 1960’s One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

So forget thinking about what pet you should get – this book will be all you need to bring your childhood racing back.
