Cordon Bleu by Tony Angelo Taliaferro

Carl Donald Blue is the main character in “Cordon Bleu” and he learns a few life lessons along his trip in the tween stages of his life/schooling. The lessons come from his father and then his Aunt. The use of the father’s toolbox to show Carl some of his life lessons is very poetic and spot on!

This story, I believe, is aimed at youngsters and tweens. There are lessons to be learned within the realm of Carl’s life that other children do not have the benefit of.

The connection of badness and ill-will toward the people that live in the trailer park teaches Carl and his Aunt not to judge a book by its cover or, in this case, by where they live. Not all people are bad that live in a specific part of town that is infamous for trouble and drugs.
