Join us for storytime with Richard Cowdrey sharing Fiona, Love at the Zoo.

Join your favorite hippo, Fiona, the adorable internet sensation from the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens, as she visits her zoo friends and celebrates how love makes the world more beautiful. Learn with Fiona as she discovers how different animals show their affection and love. Fiona, Love at the Zoo is another addition to the wildly successful Fiona the Hippo series of books, created by New York Times bestselling illustrator Richard Cowdrey.

Love is in the air as Fiona the hippo sees all the zoo animals expressing their affection for each other. Whether it’s the red panda babies cuddling up close to their mama or the swans dancing across the water, Fiona knows there are many ways to say I Love You.

Fiona, Love at the Zoo is:

  • A perfect way to tell someone you love them
  • Great for fans of Fiona the Hippo and all zoo animals
  • For children ages 4-8, and readers young and old
  • A beautiful gift for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, and more, featuring a cover that shimmers and shines with foil and gloss


Richard Cowdrey’s favorite things to draw and paint are the common things seen everywhere in nature. He enjoys capturing the expressions, eyes, and gestures of both humans and animals. Drawing and painting Fiona was challenging, as the hippopotamus is a very unique yet beautiful creature! Richard’s bestselling picture books include The Legend of the Candy Cane; Bad Dog, Marley; Fiona the Hippo; Fiona, It’s Bedtime; and Fiona Helps a Friend.
