Recently discovered Dr. Seuss book coming out in July

Random House Children's Books said Wednesday it will publish a recently discovered manuscript with illustrations called "What Pet Should I Get" on July 28.

The publisher plans at least two more books, based on materials found in 2013 in the author's home in La Jolla, California, by his widow and secretary.

Children's Books: ‘999 Frogs Wake Up’ and ‘Frog Song’

999 Frogs Wake Up

To speak of an insanely gorgeous book about frogs would seem to pose a contradiction in terms. To note two such books just seems silly. Yet here they are: “Frog Song,” the latest from Brenda Z. Guiberson and Gennady Spirin (“Life in the Boreal Forest”), and “999 Frogs Wake Up,” a sequel of sorts to 2011’s “999 Tadpoles,” by the Japanese team of Ken Kimura and Yasunari Murakami. Both are about frogs, and both are spectacularly illustrated. There the similarities end.
