Fans of Dr. Seuss who are anxiously awaiting the new book What Pet Should I Get? from the late author are finally getting a sneak peek at what’s due in July.

CNN released an image from the book on Monday that shows a pair of siblings—from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish—looking into a pet store window. It reads:

“We want a pet.

We want a pet.

What kind of pet

should we get?”

The book’s publisher, Random House Children’s Books, said in a statement Monday it increased its first printing from 500,000 to 1 million copies to meet demand.

Theodor Geisel’s (Dr. Seuss) widow found the manuscript and illustrations for What Pet Should I Get? in their home shortly after his death in 1991.
