So it’s probably been years since you picked up The Cat in the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham — after all, Dr. Seuss books are for little kids… right? But admit it. You know every word of those books by heart!
(highlight to see the words that you already know)
I do not like them in a box.
I do not like them with a fox.
I do not like them in a house.
I do not like them with a mouse.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like green eggs and ham.
I do not like them, Sam I am.
Well, guess what? Now’s the time to revisit our favorite rhyming author, because the new book The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories by Dr. Seuss will be released in September.
No, you’re not crazy. Dr. Seuss is deceased. So how can there be a new Seuss book?
Well, Dr. Seuss didn’t just write books — he also wrote and illustrated for magazines. Dr. Charles Cohen, a Seussian scholar and collector (and dentist) spent many years collecting these “lost” stories. The seven stories included in The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories are:
- “The Bippolo Seed”
- “The Bear, the Rabbit, and the Zinniga-Zanniga”
- “Gustav the Goldfish”
- “Tadd and Todd”
- “Steak for Supper”
- “The Strange Shirt Spot”
- “The Great Henry McBride”

I don’t think we can ever be too old for Dr. Seuss! When Karen and I stopped by the Wizarding World of Harry Potter last month, we also stopped by another famous book-related theme park: Seuss Landing!
There, we rode the Cat in the Hat ride:
And we even picked up matching shirts:
After you read The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories, let us know how it compares to your other favorite Seuss books! And while you wait until the book release in September, leave a comment with your favorite Seuss book when you were younger!
