Random House Children's Books announced earlier today that it will be publishing What Pet Should I Get, a newly-discovered manuscript complete with sketches by the late Dr.Seuss and featuring the siblings from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, will be published on July 28th.
What do punches smell like though? For those of you who like your sponges anthropomorphized and frowning, the kit comes complete with lip balm, shampoo, and body soap. Again, someone please purchase this and inform what punches smell like.
How better to commemorate pop culture and children's books than with strangely resilient marshmallow confections? That's Nerdalicious! pointed us in the direction of Sugar Swings (run by Michelle Clausen), where many a bunny has been transformed. Click through for the sugary goodness.
It probably says something about my urge to take care of something other than a cat that I can't imagine packing any type of lunch for a child, let alone a creative one. Thankfully,Beau Coffron, also known as "Lunchbox Dad," is happy and willing to do so for his three children. Take a look at just some of the fantastic lunchbox images he's put together with yummy ingredients which make up Star Wars, Frozen, Dr. Seuss characters and more!
Writer and all around interesting person Neil Gaiman's American Gods was optioned by HBO years ago for an adaptation, but Gaiman just dropped some updates about the show's prospects on his blog. He also read Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham because Neil Gaiman is a beautiful man.
Worldbuilders is a charitable campaign that seeks to incentivize geeks to donate to Heifer International by getting geek-friendly interests to donate prizes and time and also, clearly, videos of themselves reading beloved children's books. This is definitely a win-win scenario.

Sweet Dr. Ian Malcolm, someone book me a room in the Best Western Denver Southwest. Over the past two years they've been undergoing renovations to turn themselves into a full-on dinosaur themed hotel. To celebrate the completion of their epic quest they asked artist Sillof to design an action-figure sized Jurassic Park as if it had sprung from the mind of Dr. Seuss.
The result, as you can see behind the cut, is glorious.
Generally the less I have to think about 50 Shades of Grey, the better. I say generally, though, because occasionally this truly terrible phenomenon can give way to some surprisingly enjoyable parodies. Such is the case with a certain ExplainlikeIAmA thread on Reddit in which user Traceofbass lays out the plot of 50 Shades in the style of Dr. Seuss. Prepare to have your childhood ruined. Or enhanced, if you're into that sort of thing, I guess.
This is not actually new (from 2010, before The Mary Sue actually existed), but we're glad it's making the internet rounds now so we can show it to you. Cartoonist Adam Watson re-told the story of Star Wars in the voice of Theodore Geisel aka Dr. Seuss, and the results are really sweet. Check out more cartoons after the jump.
The Etsy shop of Modern Home Prints has a number of choices for all the parents who are teaching their small children that Murlocs go "MRRRGLlggllglglgglglglgll," and Snowths go "doot-doooo doo-doo-doo."
We've all heard of books being banned before, and as ridiculous as we may sometimes find the titles on those lists, none may be more ridiculous than this one. A school in Canada has chosen to ban Dr. Seuss' Yertle the Turtle for being subversive to children. I do not like this one bit, in fact, it has me in a snit. (Don't worry, that was my one and only attempt at rhyming in this article.)
The famed Dr. Seuss made a name for himself with his stories and wordplay, but one of the most indelible aspects of his career was his boundless zoological imagination. Whether it was the Whos in Whoville or the exotic Ka-Troo, Seuss created where Darwin feared to tread. In the same style as the venerable doctor, Carl Turner has created a series of hyper-realistic animal heads in a Seussian style. Large eyes, weird antlers, and impossible birds abound in this delightful collection. See more, after the break.
