This book by Dr. Seuss about making up one’s mind is the literary equivalent of buried treasure! What happens when a brother and sister visit a pet store to pick a pet? Naturally, they can’t choose just one! The tale captures a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and uses it to illuminate a life lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it!

Told in Dr. Seuss’s signature rhyming style, this is a must-have for Seuss fans and book collectors, and a perfect choice for the holidays, birthdays, and happy occasions of all kinds.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A very good example of [Seuss’s] particular genius for distilling both the spirit of his times and the timeless mind-set of children…And, not least, he made reading aloud something parents, too, could reliably enjoy.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Offer[s] plenty of offbeat surrealism…but the book also takes a sympathetic view of childhood indecision—with an appropriately indecisive ending.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A note from the publisher reveals a bit of the anxiety associated with publishing a text written more than fifty years ago, ‘when it was common for people to simply buy dogs, cats, and other animals at pet stores. Today animal advocates encourage us to adopt’…More nostalgia-inducing than groundbreaking, this picture book offers Seuss fans many familiar touchstones: jaunty rhymes, nonsense words… beloved by generations of new and emerging readers.”

    School Library Journal

  • “This new-old book presents a complete story line…This genial pet-shop visit provides a tantalizing glimpse into a master’s artistic process.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A Wall Street Journal Bestseller
  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller in Children's Picture Books
  • A New York Times Editor’s Choice

About the Author
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising.  His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!,  appeared in several leading American magazines.  Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!  In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best-selling series, Beginner Books.  This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.  Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents.  In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
