About the Author

THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody. Dr. Seuss's never-before-seen picture book What Pet Should I Get? will be published on July 28, 2015. The rediscovered book captures a classic childhood moment—the selection of a pet—and uses it to illustrate a life-lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but that sometimes you just have to do it!

More About the Author

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped millions of kids learn to read.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts, on March 2, 1904. After graduating from Dartmouth College in 1925, he went to Oxford University, intending to acquire a doctorate in literature. At Oxford, Geisel met Helen Palmer, whom he wed in 1927. Upon his return to America later that year, Geisel published cartoons and humorous articles for Judge, the leading humor magazine in America at that time. His cartoons also appeared in major magazines such as Life, Vanity Fair, and Liberty. Geisel gained national exposure when he won an advertising contract for an insecticide called Flit. He coined the phrase, "Quick, Henry, the Flit!" which became a popular expression.

Geisel published his first children's book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, in 1937, after 27 publishers rejected it.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984, an Academy Award, three Emmy Awards, three Grammy Awards, and three Caldecott Honors, Geisel wrote and illustrated 44 books. While Theodor Geisel died on September 24, 1991, Dr. Seuss lives on, inspiring generations of children of all ages to explore the joys of reading.

As always, Dr. Seuss has done a great job capturing the imagination and attention of children with this wonderful book. (This book is actually one taken from a full-length book he wrote, "If I Ran The Circus".) The fact that it is a board book is a major plus as I have a 2 year old who can be rough on books. The only thing I did not realize was that it is has flaps to open and see pictures underneath. I am not crazy about the flaps as they could be torn off but other than that, my kids and I just love it!

Love the "doctor", but this abridged version has virtually no text to speak of. 2 or 3 flaps and that's it. Bores me AND my daughter to death.

This is a cute book our 6 month old enjoys. Its definitely not one of my favorites (story or layout wise) but he enjoys how big it is when it is all opened up and he loves flaps which this has. I recommend Wet Pet Dry Pet, its a touch and feel and he LOVES it.

It was a bit difficult for me to figure out the order for the story since I'd never read it until I had to read it to my class, so the pull out book was an interesting challenge. Yes I know what kind of an airhead sound like.
But a cute story.

This is a book bases on Dr. Seuss' writing, someone else wrote this and tried to rhyme the pages and not very well. We would not buy it again for the content but the boys have fun with the book as it unfolds into a train.

My 17 month old son LOVES this book--the fold out/accordion format and lift-flaps are engaging and fun. And in true Dr. Suess fashion, the rhyming is fast and quirky. We love this!
