I finally figured out what the cover of Where´d you go, Bernadette reminds me of. It´s Puck, die Stubenfliege:



Puck, die Stubenfliege is a character in "Biene Maja", a famous German children cartoon series. And isn´t he just adorable. I considered the cover of Where´d you go, Bernadette for the terrible cover spot. But come on, Puck die Stubenfliege is on the cover! I just can´t do it.

Thankfully there is a boat trip in this book, so I´m claiming the "Travel: planes, trains or road trips" spot for this book.
