Novesky and Gillingham follow Love Is a Tutu with a lighthearted, vehicle-centric reflection on love. Some of the analogies in Noveskys mostly unrhymed verse work better than others: the idea that Love is a loader. Love is a lifter in one constructed-themed scene has real resonance, compared to lines that just name-check vehicles (Love is a dump truck, rounded with dirt./ A bulldozer, a digger, a rolling cement mixer). Gillinghams clean graphics showcase one childs very evident love of toy trucks; the brown-skinned, overalls-clad childs gender isnt apparent, a reminder that truck love is universal. Ages 26. (Nov.)
