Book «Captain Borsch“ is funny stories about cheerful captain who prepares soup-borsch every day because his pleasure boat works on borsch. I came up with this hero when my husband Alyosha and I travelled on Baltic sea at ferry. The ferry is huge. We climbed to the very top, and there from cooker hood it smelled so delicious borsch that Alyosha said: „It seems our ferry is sailing on the borsch.“ And I replied: „Yeah, and Captain Borsch is behind the helm.“ And the wind immediately blew these stories! And the seagulls yelled that it is ok! And then this book was born.
