Fiona lovers have something new to celebrate — a new children’s book called “Fiona the Hippo.”

Fiona was born 6 weeks premature in January, 2017. She is the smallest hippo ever known to survive after zookeepers nursed her back to health. She weight a third of the size of a typical full-term Nile hippo when she was born.
