Jan Sherbin is a Cincinnati writer who wanted to capture little hippo Fiona’s earliest days in a story for people of all ages, from small children to grown-ups. She wanted people who followed Fiona’s journey to have a long-lasting remembrance of that special experience.
Hip, Hippo, Hooray for Fiona! is the result. The book shows the extraordinary animal-human bond between Fiona and the keepers who saved her life, the devotion of Zoo staff, and the Zoo’s groundbreaking science and animal care. The book is a tribute to a tiny hippo with a big personality, who brought happiness into our troubled world.
A portion of proceeds from sales of Hip, Hippo, Hooray for Fiona! goes to the Cincinnati Zoo to help it continue its world-class work.
