New Dr. Seuss book out today

(WTNH) — CNN reports that a new, original Dr. Seuss book is being released today.

The book is called “What Pet Should I Get,” and it is the first new Dr. Seuss book since 1990’s “Oh, the Place’s You’ll Go!”

The story features a similar moral and even the same set of siblings in Seuss’s “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.” The brother and sister are seen on the first page of the book, peering into the pet shop window in awe:

“We want a pet.
We want a pet.
What kind of pet should we get?”

are the first lines of the story; believed to have been written between 1958 and 1962 according to CNN.

The number of pre-orders have skyrocketed over the past month. The book’s first printing had to be increased from 500,000 to 1 million copies, according to president and publisher of Random House Children’s Books, Barbra Marcus.
