(LEX 18/NBC SAN DIEGO) — A new Dr. Seuss was celebrated on Tuesday in La Jolla where Dr. Seuss once lived, according to NBC San Diego.

The newly released book is called "Dr. Seuss's Horse Museum" and is based on a manuscript that was found by the widow of Theodore Geisel in 2013.

The book has been illustrated by Andrew Joyner, according to NBC San Diego, and includes cameos from classic Dr. Seuss characters like the Grinch and the Cat in the Hat.

"'The Horse Museum' is a way to try and teach children about art... How different people can look at the same object - in this case, a horse - and see it in completely different ways depending on their own imagination," Lynda Claassen, the director of special collections and archives at UC San Diego, told NBC San Diego.

Audrey Geisel, Theodore's widow, donated millions to UC San Diego with more than 12,000 items of Theodore's work, which included original drawings and sketches according to UC San Diego.
