The Lovereading4Kids comment
More than 60 years after they were first published Dr Seuss’s books continue to work their magic on children: his rhyme and rhythm, nonsense humour and wordplay and sudden bursts of anarchy have strong child appeal. All of these Seussian characteristics are to be found in this ‘new’ story – actually an early manuscript and sketches discovered at his home and completed with loving attention by the editorial team. The story of two children (the two from the classic One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish in fact) sent to choose a pet from the pet shop it has lots of charm and looks wonderful. Adult readers will be interested in the extra material included which contains information on Theodor Seuss Geisel (he was a self-appointed Dr) and the background to his books. ~ Andrea Reece
What Pet Should I Get by Dr. Seuss
A brother and sister visit a pet shop to pick a pet, but can't decide which one to go for. Sometimes making a choice can seem impossible to a child, and What Pet...? explores how it is hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it! The cliffhanger ending will also fire children's imaginations and provoke discussion about their own choices.
A Publisher's Note at the end discusses the thrilling recent discovery of this new manuscript and illustrations, exploring Dr Seuss' creative process and the inspiration of his own life in his work. This never-ever-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss about making up one's mind is the literary equivalent of buried treasure!
The text and illustrations for What Pet Should I Get? were originally completed by Dr. Seuss sometime in the 1950s but lay undiscovered until his wife, Audrey Geisel, and long-time secretary and friend, Claudia Prescott, discovered them in a box while cleaning out his office space in autumn 2013.
Executive Publisher, Ann-Janine Murtagh said “The book is a rare treasure and as the proud UK and Commonwealth publisher of Dr Seuss, HarperCollins firmly believes that every child and parent deserves to discover the joy of reading a Dr Seuss book.”
Dr. Seuss ignites a child's imagination with his mischievous characters and zany verses. - The Express
