Everybody Wants the Fiona Book!

Everyone's favorite hippo has a new book, right in time for the holidays!

Cincinnati’s favorite hippo has a brand-new book just in time for the holidays! In the story, Fiona searches for the meaning of Christmas at the zoo while discovering unique sights and sounds a long the way. A Very Fiona Christmas is by Cincinnati native Richard Cowdrey — be sure to pick up a copy at your local bookstore or swing by the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s (3400 Vine St.) 37th annual PNC Festival of Lights to get your copy.

Fiona’s a part of the lights festival this year, too! Search for Fiona fairy statues in Fiona’s Fairyland and take pictures in the Hippo Hut! Getting into the zoo will be easy this year, thanks to the new additional entrance located at Erkenbrecher Avenue.

Visit or call 513-281-4700 for more information.
