Though Theodor Seuss Geisel—best known as Dr. Seuss—passed away in 1991, his spirit lives eternally through his imaginative characters and tongue-twisting rhymes that have delighted children and parents alike for decades. Today, “Horton and the Kwuggerbug and more Lost Stories” is released from Random House, featuring four stories that originally appeared—and were subsequently forgotten about—in Redbook magazine in the early ’50s. Now republished in book format, more people are able to read Dr. Seuss’ lesser-known tales today.

Included in this collection of stories are some new and familiar characters, including Horton the elephant, the conniving Kwuggerbug and even a different Grinch, albeit one equally as crafty as the one who stole Christmas. “Horton and the Kwuggerbug and more Lost Stories” is available in hardcover from Amazon or Random House for $15. Be sure to also check out “The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories,” if you want more rediscovered Seuss.
