Rainn Wilson Narrates New Dr. Seuss Audiobook

By Dianna Dilworth 

Actor Rainn Wilson has been cast to narrate the audiobook edition of Dr. Seuss’s new book, What Pet Should I Get.

“It was an honor and privilege to help bring to life the words of perhaps my favorite author (and doctor) of all time, Dr. Seuss!,” Wilson commented on being selected for the job.

The actor, best known for his work as Dwight Schrute on NBC’s The Office, has narrated several other audiobooks including co-star B.J. Novak’s One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories, and will narrate his upcoming memoir, The Bassoon King, due out in October.

The manuscript for the new Seuss book was discovered back in February and Penguin Random House revealed that it will be published at the end of July. The first printing for the hardcover picture book is 1 million units.
