“Monster in the water” is a fun and engaging introduction to harmful algal blooms.  It provides children with useful information about algal blooms and their potential links to nutrient enrichment and eutrophication and offers a few simple actions that they can take in their local community to help prevent blooms.  This book would be a great gift for any young scientist, and can help parents and teachers inspire or encourage an interest in the biological sciences."
