Fiona, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden's beloved baby hippo, has a lot of fans here at WCPO: We've made her a valentine, written a song in her honor and even designed a downloadable paper doll hippo. Now we've created a book for her, too. In November, WCPO will publish "My Best Friend Fiona," a limited-edition illustrated children's book, with permission from the Cincinnati Zoo. Created by WCPO cartoonist Kevin Necessary and community reporter Lucy May, "My Best Friend Fiona" tells the story of the little hippo who never gave up and how she became the superstar she is today. The 32-page hardcover book, which is sponsored by Skyline Chili, features illustrations of Fiona, her family and her adoring public. "My Best Friend Fiona" retails for $19.95, plus shipping and handling, and is now available for pre-order at www.mybestfriendfiona.com and in Skyline Chili's online retail store. Books will ship after Thanksgiving.
