Dr. Seuss' "What Pet Should I Get?" flies off the shelves

Looks like many people are wondering what pet to get.

Dr. Seuss' long-lost picture book "What Pet Should I Get?" has become the fastest-selling picture book in the industry this year. The book was released on July 28 and sold 200,000 copies in its first week.

That number made "What Pet" the fastest-selling picture book Random House Children's Book history.

"What Pet Should I Get?" also snagged the number one spot on Publisher Weekly's Top 10 Overall Bestsellers list, ahead of high-profile books such as Harper Lee's "Go Set a Watchman" and John Green's "Paper Towns."
