    A new Dr Seuss book is to be published in July, following the discovery of a box of manuscript and sketches in the La Jolla, the California home of the much celebrated children’s author Ted Geisel.

    RandomHouse Children’s Books announced on Wednesday that What Pet Should I Get? will be published on July 28, 2015.

    At least two more books will be published from matieral found in the same box of manuscripts, though their titles have not yet been disclosed.

    The box filled with pages of text and sketches was found shortly after Geisel’s death in 1991 by his widow Audrey Geisel.

    At the time, the box was set aside with other of Geisel’s materials, and was not rediscovered until more than two decade later, in late 2013 by Mrs Geisel and Claudia Prescott, Geisel’s longtime secretary and friend, when they were cleaning out his office space.

    “While undeniably special, it is not surprising to me that we found this because Ted always worked on multiple projects and started new things all the time—he was constantly writing and drawing and coming up with ideas for new stories,” said Mrs Geisel.
    She added that it was “especially heartwarming” as this year marks twenty-five years since the publication of the last book of Ted’s career, ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’
    The discovered materials will be kept at UC San Diego, where the Dr Seuss Collection is hosed within the Geisel Library.
    What Pet Should I Get? captures the childhood experience of choosing a first pet, and features the same brother and sister characters that Dr Seuss introduced in 'One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish'.

    Dr Seuss previously published 46 children's books, including such celebrated classics as Horton Hears a Who! (1954), The Cat in the Hat (1957), How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1957), Green Eggs and Ham (1960) and The Lorax (1971).
    His writings were made into 11 television specials, four films, a Broadway musical and four television series.
    Geisel was studying for a PhD in English literature at Oxford University when he met Helen Palmer, a fellow writer and his future wife, who persuaded him to abandon his plans of a career in academia.
    He left Britain without gaining a degree to return to America in 1927, where he immediately began submitting his writings for publication.
