New Dr. Seuss-inspired books are coming with an emphasis on inclusion

Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Random House Children's Books will launch a line of new, Seuss-inspired books that draw from the beloved author's unpublished illustrations.

(CNN)New books are coming to the wide Dr. Seuss canon -- and new creators are taking the reins from the late children's author to write stories that reflect Seussian whimsy and the diversity of his readership.

Dr. Seuss Enterprises, with Random House Children's Books, will publish a line of books for readers ages 4 to 8 that build on Dr. Seuss' work, but they'll be helmed by an "inclusive community of authors and illustrators," Dr. Seuss Enterprises said in a statement. Seuss, born Theodor Seuss Geisel, died in 1991.
The books will be a part of the new Seuss Studios and are inspired by Seuss' unpublished illustrations, per Seuss Enterprises.
