Book Reviews:

In the second of a series, internet sensation Fiona the Hippo, who was born six weeks prematurely at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2017, celebrates Christmas. With the zoo lights shining and a festive feeling in the air, Fiona goes searching for the true meaning of the holiday. She slides down a snowy bank with the penguins, admires the zoo's Christmas tree, and meets reindeer, but still seeks an answer: 'What's Christmas, Mama?' Cowdrey illustrates in a cozy, inviting art style that--while it doesn't offer much verisimilitude relating to Fiona's backstory--will appeal to younger readers invested in the characters. A predictable narrative arc (Fiona discovers that the true meaning of Christmas is giving to others) is nevertheless sweetly uplifting. (Publishers Weekly)

Join everyone’s favorite hippo, Fiona, and all her loveable animal friends for their first heartwarming Christmas adventure through the zoo to find the answer to the question, “What’s Christmas?” This fun and whimsical book is the perfect read-aloud for fans of Fiona (and hippos) everywhere!

A follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Fiona the Hippo picture book comes A Very Fiona Christmas!

It’s Fiona the hippo’s very first Christmas, and the zoo is sparkling with holiday spirit. When the adorable little hippo asks her friends, “What’s Christmas?” they set out to show her all the wonders and excitement of the season. With each new experience Fiona lets out a snort, wiggles her ears, and asks, “Is THIS Christmas?”

Amidst the snow, twinkling lights, mistletoe, and stockings, Fiona ends up meeting a new friend at the zoo who helps her discover the true meaning of the holiday: Love. Snuggle up with your little ones and join Fiona and her adorable animal friends for a heartwarming holiday romp through the zoo.
