Frankly, there are not enough books with hippos on the cover.
I love that Fiona's story is "real" and might inspire kids to do research on animals!

The cover is the perfect combination of adorable, simple, and elegant! I like the synopsis because I enjoy spunky underdog type stories. This looks like a great book that my nephew would love.
