Dr. Seuss may be gone, but his work is far from over.

Random House announced on Wednesday that it is publishing a new children’s book by the author, real name Theodor Seuss Geisel, this year.

“What Pet Should I Get?” will hit shelves on July 28.

The publishing company also plans on releasing two more books based on materials the deceased author’s widow, Audrey Geisel, and his secretary found in his La Jolla, California home in 2013.

The pair found the full text and illustrations for “What Pet Should I Get?” in a box filled with pages of written material and sketches, which Audrey found and stored while remodeling their home shortly after Seuss’s death in 1991.

Random House associate publishing director Cathy Goldsmith told the Associated Press that the new book, featuring the same brother and sister from Dr. Seuss‘ 1960 classic “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish,”  was likely written between 1958 and 1962.
