What Pet Should I Get? And One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

Dr. Seuss, read by Rainn Wilson and David Hyde Pierce. Listening Library, , unab

Dr. Seuss’s fantastic and bemusing tales are perfect for spoken recitation, with their rhyming schemes and rhythmic cadences. In this collection, actor Pierce, best known for his role on the television show Frasier, charmingly narrates the classic One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish; Rainn Wilson, who played Dwight Schrute on the television show The Office, delivers an amusing rendition of the recently discovered and posthumously published What Pet Should I Get? Both skilled actors maintain the right rhythm and emphasis, while providing warm and excited voices for the characters. An extensive, informative afterword from the publisher provides background information about both stories in the context of Seuss’s career, read by a third, uncredited actor. (July)
