ABOUT THE BOOK
What Pet Should I Get?
Written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss
Published by Random House Books for Young Readers
This previously never-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss about making up one’s mind is the literary equivalent of buried treasure. What happens when a brother and sister visit a pet store to pick a pet? Naturally, they can’t choose just one. The tale captures a classic childhood moment, choosing a pet and uses it to illuminate a life lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it. Told in Dr. Seuss’s signature rhyming style, this is a must-have for Seuss fans and book collectors, and a perfect choice for the holidays, birthdays, and happy occasions of all kinds. An Editor’s Note at the end discusses Dr. Seuss’s pets, his creative process, and the discovery of the manuscript and illustrations for What Pet Should I Get?
