New York, NY (February 18, 2015)—An original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, which was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author will be published by Random House Children’s Books, it was announced today by Barbara Marcus, President & Publisher, and Susan Brandt, President, Licensing and Marketing, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? will be published on July 28, 2015.
A box filled with pages of text and sketches was found shortly after Ted’s death in 1991 when his widow Audrey Geisel was remodeling her home. At that time it was set aside with other of Ted’s materials. It was rediscovered in the fall of 2013 by Mrs. Geisel and Claudia Prescott—Ted Geisel’s longtime secretary and friend—when they were cleaning out his office space. They reviewed the materials, finding the full text and illustrations for WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?

If I Had a Triceratops by George O'Connor
Expected Publication Date: February 10th, 2015
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Page Count: 32 pages
Ages: 4-7 years old

With deft visual humor, a "New York Times" best-selling author-illustrator imagines how awesome it would be to have a pet triceratops living in your backyard. Wouldn't it be great to have a triceratops for a pet? If you had one, it would probably be your best friend. It would always want to play with you, and it would always know how you're feeling. On dark and stormy nights, if your triceratops got scared, you could let it sleep in your room. True, a triceratops is a little on the huge side, but that just means more pet to love, and more pet to love you right back Just imagine your very own pet triceratops running out to greet you at the end of the day. "Ooof "Wouldn't that be the best thing "ever"?

Why We Can't Wait: O'Connor's If I Had a Raptor won us over with the first page, and we have no doubt that his newest will do the same. Written in a similar fashion to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, O'Connor's dinosaur stories are hilarious and adorable. With lovely, pastel illustrations, the images are just as fantastic as the words. We're sure If I Had a Triceratops will not disappoint!

Not too many new things out this week, but we are SUPER excited for Melissa Kantor's Better Than Perfect!
She's just fantastic!
