A brand new Dr. Seuss book, “What Pet Should I Get?” is set for release tomorrow July 28, 2015. This is the first book to be released since his last book “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” in 1990, a year before his passing.

Audrey Geisel, his widow and longtime secretary Claudia Prescott cleaned out many boxes of Theodor Seuss Geisel’s work, in 2013 sketches for this new release were rediscovered after being stored after his death.

“What Pet Should I Get?” will feature the same sibling duo from one of Dr. Seuss previous works “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish”, which will excite fans of the classic rhyming tale. The Random House Children’s Books publisher and president announced in April that the first printing of “What Pet Should I Get?” will be increased to 1 million copies from 500,000 because the demand was incredibly high, which is no surprise.

Theodor Seuss Geisel was a very inspirational man who published 44 children’s best seller books, selling more than 650 million books worldwide. What some might not know is that Theodor once worked for Warner Bros. Studios writing for the animated war cartoon “Private Snafu.” He also won an Oscar for writing an animated short called ‘Gerald McBoing-Boing’ in 1951.

All you Dr. Seuss fans out there be ready to pick up this rare gem tomorrow, I know I will be!

Lavalle Lee

Lavalle Lee has been creating animated cartoons online since 1999/2000 for his website flashcartoons.org. Many cartoons on the site have gained viral video status reaching millions of viewers online. In 2009, Lavalle started learning hand drawn animation from Don Bluth in his animation classes, as well as attending his Masterclasses in Arizona. He has also personally studied animation and visual effects from Veteran Disney animators in Orlando, FL.

Lavalle is widely known in the animation industry as the creator of the TraditionalAnimation.com website. After seeing that most animation sites were about all types of animation, not any specific to classical hand drawn animation, Lavalle knew Traditional Animation needed to be represented online. TraditionalAnimation.com has become the leading website and social media account for all things 2D. The website served as inspiration for “The Traditional Animation Show” in which Lavalle was both producer and host.

His partnership with Don Bluth began when he championed the Dragon's Lair Indiegogo campaign as lead project manager, editor, voice actor and in-betweener. The campaign reached $730,000 dollars to produce a 7-minute pitch video. In 2017, Lavalle brought the idea of creating a school to Don Bluth, and Don Bluth University was born. After a decade of learning from Don Bluth and working together on multiple pitches and business ventures, Lavalle accepted the position as Vice President of Don Bluth's new company Don Bluth Studios.

    *pushes up glasses* Actually, I think you’ll find his last release was “Daisy-Head Mayzie,” published posthumously in 1995.
