Baby Fiona captured her zookeeper’s hearts and took the social-media world by storm!  Born prematurely at the Cincinnati Zoo, the little hippo struggled to survive.  With the help of a very dedicated zoo staff and neonatal nurses, Fiona found her way in the world and began to develop the sweetest personality a hippo has had yet.

Join Fiona on her adventure, as she learns what it means to be a hippo in this nonfiction story, illustrated with over 60 photographs from the Cincinnati Zoo.
