Imma let you finish, Harper Lee — but have you guys heard about the new Dr. Seuss book?
The late Theodor Geisel (a.k.a.  Dr. Seuss) is the latest beloved author to have a long-lost manuscript turn up at the printing press. The Wall Street Journal reports that Random House is publishing material found by Geisel's widow, Audrey, and secretary, Claudia Prescott.  First up is an illustrated children's book called What Pet Should I Get?, which features the same characters from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. At least two more books will be published later on. It's been 25 years since the last Dr. Seuss book, Oh, The Places You'll Go!, came out. The author died in 1991 at the age of 87. We know the places you'll be going come July 28: the bookstore, the library... Time to be a kid again.
