Written by: Dianne Edmonds Posted on 24 Oct 2023 0

What an intriguing book, when reading it for the first time and not knowing who Mim was! Meet Mim was written by Sandra Severgnini, and was published by EK Books.  

Meet Mim brings to life the world of the shallow ocean bed, in this story of an amazing animal, the mimic octopus. Dive down into the world of the sandy seabed and observe the clever transformations of a very tricky sea creature. 

The illustrations give a realistic picture of the sea creatures in this environment and how perfectly the octopus impersonates and outwits them. It will keep your child guessing as you or they read this story – what is the real shape of the master of disguise that Meet Mim introduces us to?

Hatchling marine biologists will delight in the wealth of accurate detail presented in the illustrations. Adult and child readers alike will be left with a new appreciation for the life in our precious yet threatened marine environments


The author Sandra Severgnini has written other books including Grub and Tree Beings (also published by EK Books), as well as Boogie Woogie Bird, In the Shadow of an Elephant, Where’s Lucky?, and The Christmas Garden. In 2020, Tree Beings was an INDIES Finalist for Juvenile Nonfiction (Children’s) and won a Wilderness Society Environmnet Award for Children’s Literature.

Sandra owned an art gallery and retail store before finally deciding it was well and truly time to nurture her lifetime passion and focus on children’s picture books. Her fascination with the magical natural world around her inspires her words and brings sensitivity and humor to her illustrations.


Meet Mim is available from EK Books and where all good books are sold.
