Mr and Mrs Barleycorn’s lives change drastically when Mr Barleycorn finds a little green infant one day and brings him home. The next morning, they wake up to find the entire house brimming from floor to ceiling with flowering fruits and vegetables. Mrs Barleycorn is not impressed with the new state of her room. And when vines grow through the train tracks overnight and stop the trains, the town’s dissent against the greenling and his seemingly magical powers grows reaches a breaking point. Only Mr Barleycorn remains on the infant’s side… GREENLING is a declaration of love towards nature told through verse and intricate illustrations. Levi Pinfold is a first-time guest at the ilb and will be presenting GREENLING for the first time in Germany. “Pinfold’s vision of the natural world breaking free of human fetters is captivating” (Publishers Weekly).
