Beloved author of the Beany Malone series, Lenora Mattingly Weber wrote many books and short stories throughout the 1940s and 1950s. Her heart warming stories and endearing characters continue to be enjoyed by a new generation of readers as well as by lifelong Weber fans.
The Beany Malone series has one of the most endearing family of characters of the malt shop era. The reader feels that she is living among the characters, sitting at the kitchen table, and walking the halls of Harkness High.
Weber shows her range in her creation of another Denver family, the Belfords as well as in her well developed non-series books.
Lenora Mattingly Weber's characters are true to life, never perfect, always well meaning, and as 3-dimensional as the family next door.
