Dr. Seuss Is Back!

The legendary children's book author Dr. Seuss, who wrote iconic titles like "The Cat in the Hat" and "Oh, The Places You'll Go!" died over 20 years ago, but he has a new book coming out soon.

"What Pet Should I Get?" will be released on July 28 of this year.

Aubrey Geisel, Theodore's wife, discovered the manuscripts when she was remodeling their La Jolla home, a beautiful neighborhood near San Diego, California. She set the text and sketches aside at the time, and years later they were rediscovered in 2013.

Random House Children's Books plans to release at least two more books based on materials found in 2013 by his widow and his secretary in the author's home.

"While undeniably special, it is not surprising to me that we found this because Ted always worked on multiple projects and started new things all the timeā€”he was constantly writing and drawing and coming up with ideas for new stories," said Audrey Geisel about her husband's legacy in a statement.

"It is especially heartwarming for me as this year also marks 25 years since the publication of the last book of Ted's career, 'Oh, the Places You'll Go!'" she said.

Random House associate publishing director Cathy Goldsmith says "What Pet Should I Get?" was likely written between 1958 and 1962 according to USA Today.

As major Seuss lovers, we can't wait to read the new book. Will you be incorporating it in your bedtime reading?
