“New” Dr. Seuss; NPR Sneak Peek

Arriving this fall is a collection of “lost” stories by Dr. Seuss. The book came about in an interesting way, as revealed on All Things Considered last night. Via eBay, a Random House art director discovered a Dr. Seuss-obsessed collector who had identified magazines from the ’50’s featuring Seuss stories (he had a great business of buying the magazines for a few dollars and reselling them, with the Seuss name noted, for $200 to $400). Those, combined with some stories that were partially finished at Seuss’s death and voilà, The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories.
