    Earlier this year, it was announced that a new Dr. Seuss book called What Pet Should I Get will be coming out 24 years after the author's death. Fans everywhere couldn’t be more delighted.

    Now, the publishers have released a page from the new Theodor Giesel (Dr. Seuss) book, and it’s causing even more frenzy.

     


    The image shows a brother and sister from the One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish book (also by Dr. Seuss) looking at a cat at pet shop window. The text reads:


    “We want a pet.

    We want a pet.

    What kind of pet

    should we get?”

    The book’s first printing was even increased to 1 million copies from its previous 500,000 to keep up with demands, said Barbara Marcus, president and publisher of Random House Children’s Books.

    “We were absolutely overjoyed to see the response to What Pet Should I Get? from every corner of the book world – the bookselling community, media, educators, and readers nationwide,” said Marcus.

    The new book, set to debut this July, is the first original Dr. Seuss book since the release of Oh, the Places You’ll Go! in 1990, a year before the author’s death. 

    Audrey Geisel, widow of Theodor, found the manuscript and illustrations in their home in 1991. Random House Children’s Books said that it expects to release more books from the found materials.
