A newly discovered Dr. Seuss book finally goes on sale today, fifty years after it was first written.

What Pet Should I Get? follows a brother and sister as they visit a pet store and struggle to decide which animal to take home.

Dr. Seuss died more than 20 years ago, but in 2013 his wife, Audrey, found a pile of notes and drawings left behind by the famous author, which were used for the new book.

His other famous children's books include The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

The book is based on original drawings that Dr. Seuss sketched fifty years ago
