About the Author

THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody. Dr. Seuss's never-before-seen picture book What Pet Should I Get? will be published on July 28, 2015. The rediscovered book captures a classic childhood moment—the selection of a pet—and uses it to illustrate a life-lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but that sometimes you just have to do it!

This was my son's favorite book when he was a little boy in the 70's. It was read to him hundreds, possibly thousands, of times. When his daughter was born I set about trying to find the book only to find that it was out of print. I was so happy to see that it recently became available again. The story is exactly the same, although the illustrations are different. I actually like the illustrations better in this new release. My son is now enjoying reading Hooper Humperdink to his daughter.

The narrator is having a party and he invited a lot of people but not Hooper Humperdink intle the end he did invite him.

I love this book!!! The whole time, the narrator is speaking of the huge, fun, party or carnival that he is having. He talks about the activities and festivities and how he is going to invite every single person he knows and more; however, the whole time he is also reminding us that he is not going to invite Hooper Humperdink¿because for some reason, he just doesn¿t like him very much. The illustrations really make the book¿they show all of these people and all of this fun, and Hooper Humperdink standing on the outside looking in and appearing very sad and hurt because of this rejection. But¿in the end, the host decides to invite Hooper after all! This book teaches children about acceptance and inclusion¿it makes them feel sad for Hooper and teaches them that no one deserves to feel like that so include everyone and do not leave anyone out!
