Following the discovery of an original Dr. Seuss manuscript in the home of the author 21 years after his death, a new Dr. Seuss book will be published this year.
Random House Children’s Books announced that “Dr. Seuss’s Horse Museum” will be published on Sept. 3. The first printing will consist of 250,000 copies.
“Taking inspiration from Dr. Seuss’s original sketches, acclaimed illustrator Andrew Joyner has completed the unfinished artwork to accompany Dr. Seuss’s original text and created a look that is both subtly Seussian and wholly his own,” the announcement notes. “Joyner’s whimsical illustrations are combined throughout with full-color photographic reproductions of famous horse artwork by Pablo Picasso, George Stubbs, Rosa Bonheur, Alexander Calder, Jacob Lawrence, Deborah Butterfield, Franz Marc, Jackson Pollock, and many others.”
The book will feature cameo appearances by classic Dr. Seuss characters including the Cat in the Hat, the Grinch and Horton the Elephant.
