Two-time Pelican author Wesley Eure is a veteran actor and co-creator of PBS' number one rated television show for preschoolers, Dragon Tales, now in its second season. His new show for young audiences, Show and Tell Me, will air in 2001.
Wesley's newest title with Pelican, A Fish Out of Water, is the result of a collaboration with the Art Department at Meredith College and is his first book for preschoolers and primary grades.
His first book, The Red Wings of Christmas, illustrated by Ron Paolillo (Welcome Back, Kotter's "Horshack"), has been called "A new American classic" by CNN.
Wesley is best known for his simultaneous roles as "Will" on the Sid and Marty Croft favorite of the 1970s, Land of the Lost, and as "Michael Horton, Jr." on NBC's Days of Our Lives. Recently he has appeared as the host of the game show Finders Keepers on Nickelodeon.
Eure's production company, Games at Sea, creates, produces and directs on-board entertainment for cruise lines. His "Blues Brothers 2000" live stage show at Universal Studios Hollywood has been rated the number one tour show in the park. Eure has also written the screenplay and songs for an animated version of The Red Wings of Christmas, which has been optioned by Artesian Entertainment, which is scheduled for release in 2001.
