It's back by popular demand...

As a child do you remember reading The Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss? I do and have read it to the girls and they have loved it. We have never owned a Dr Seuss book - we have always got them from the library.  So when the opportunity came up to review a Dr Seuss book I said yes knowing that the girls would love it.

If you are a fan of Dr Seuss you will be glad to know that he is back by popular demand; publishing a special gift edition of 'What Pet Should I Get?'  This is a brand new, never seen before rhyming picture book with the child deciding what pet should they pick.

This book was originally written and illustrated by Dr Seuss sometime in the 1950's and it was found by his wife Audrey and a friend in a box in 2013.  His wife wasn't surprised by this because he was always starting different projects, they think this is how he came up with 'One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish'. At the end of the story it goes on to tell a bit more of how they found this story and a little bit about Dr Seuss.  He was an animal lover and owned dogs all his life, but desipte his love of dogs, it was a Cat that had the biggest influence on his career.  He had been writing for twenty seven years, but 'The Cat in the Hat' in 1957 was an overnight success making him instantly famous.

Summer was super excited to read this book tonight #lategram #drseuss #books #bookworm #review #reading #learning

We have had this book since Monday and we have read it every night, Summer asks me to read it quicker which she finds hilarious.  The pet she has picked is a Dog and a Cat  but this may change tomorrow night.

They are planning on relaunching 8 classics from Dr Seuss so keep your eyes peeled.

This book comes out on the 28th January but you can preorder your own copy today from Amazon RRP £12.08

*I got given this book for my own photos and opinion*

  2. I have a vague recollection of getting the Dr Seuss books from the library as a kid, but I know that when my kids were younger I used to love reading these to them. I'm glad they are relaunching them.
