We're getting new Dr. Seuss books ... sort of.
A group of up-and-coming — and diverse — authors and artists will use the art to create new stories.
Contracts are still being finalized, so no names have been announced, but we do know that the first book is expected out next year, with hopefully at least two new ones per year.
Among the images that will inspire the books: a catlike creature with enormous ears and colorful hummingbirds with pointy noses.
The announcement from Dr. Seuss Enterprises came Wednesday, which is both Seuss's birthday and National Read Across America Day ... as well as the one-year anniversary of the company announcing it would stop publishing six Seuss titles that contained racist and insensitive images.
