This fall, readers will be treated to a new manuscript from beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss, 28 years after the writer’s death.
The work, titled Dr. Seuss’s Horse Museum, stars an “affable horse” who guides readers on a tour of the museum, showcasing famous horse art from creators like Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, and Deborah Butterfield. The book “marks a celebration of art and how we all see the world in different ways,” promises the official press release from Random House.
The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, and the Grinch will all also have cameos in the book, Random House reports.
The manuscript for Horse Museum was discovered in the late author’s home alongside the manuscript for Which Pet Should I Get?, which was published by Random House in 2015 and became a No. 1 New York Times best-seller. Random House plans to publish a 250,000-copy first printing of Dr. Seuss’s Horse Museum.
Illustrator Andrew Joyner produced the artwork for the title inspired by Theodore Giesel’s original sketches for the manuscript. The book will also include a “Publisher’s Note” in the end, which will share the book’s path to publication along with information about the artists in the book.
“We’re so excited to have Dr. Seuss’s Horse Museum to share with readers, and to give them an inside look at how Ted thought about art, and how he viewed the world – which was with a creative eye, and a passionate belief in imagination,” said Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises.
Dr. Seuss’s Horse Museum is available for pre-order on Amazon and is currently set to release on September 3, 2019.
