Cover Curiosity: Bumps

Usually in these posts I share two or more children’s books that – intentionally or unintentionally – resemble each other. But rare is the occasion when I can share a book for kids and a book for adults that give off that Cover Curiosity vibe. 

That’s what we have today.

First up, the book for adults:

The Farm by Joanne Ramos

And now the book for kids:


Crescendo by Paola Quintavalle, illustrated by Alessandro Sanna

How about a side to side?

This resemblance falls squarely in the coincidence zone for me.

Any others out there that could join this group?
