Evan Longoria, the all-star Tampa Bay Rays third baseman, reads the new Dr. Seuss book to Boys and Girls Club youngsters aboard Carnival Paradise in Tampa
Carnival Cruise Line and its partner, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, held events for the release of the new book, 'What Pet Should I Get?' with book readings by Tampa Bay Rays all-star Evan Longoria aboard Carnival Paradise in Tampa and local broadcasting legend Angela Hill aboard Carnival Dream in New Orleans.

In conjunction with the event, Carnival is matching Longoria’s donation of $100 to Pet Pal Animal Shelter for every home run he hits during the 2015 season. The cruise line is also donating monies to the Tampa Bay and Louisiana chapters of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

Donning Dr. Seuss’ signature striped hat and surrounded by rescue dogs from the SPCA, Longoria and Hill delighted children with spirited readings of 'What Pet Should I Get?' The book is based on an original manuscript and accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, that was discovered in the La Jolla, California, home of the late beloved author.

Following the reading, children and their chaperones joined The Cat in the Hat, Sam I am, and Thing 1 and Thing 2 for Carnival’s Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with The Cat in the Hat and Friends, part of the line’s exclusive Seuss at Sea program.
