Genre: Children’s Chapter Book
Two young boys in a coastal town discover a secret about their mysterious elementary school teacher, Miss L’eau. James and David had always known there was something unusual about her, but they could never quite put their finger on it. David discovered their first clue had been there all along, in her eyes.
The boys lived their whole lives near the ocean, but had never thought about how important it was or how vulnerable it might be. Through Miss L’eau, and her unexpected relationship to the sea, they develop a deeper love and understanding of the ocean and become involved with the nearby aquarium to organize an annual seaside clean-up.
Miss L’eau had the most unusual pair of eyes! She wore glasses when she taught, but when she had to deal with just you – she would lean over your desk, move her glasses down to the end of her nose … and there they were! Miss L’eau’s eyes were as blue-green as the sea, and if you could get up the courage to stare right into them, you’d swear you could see angel fish, sea plants, coral beds and even sea anemones!! It was the most wonderful, yet frightening, experience when she would talk to you face-to-face.

The people that surround her help her to continue seeing the world with all its magic, beauty and potential.
