Former journalist and children’s theater maker Ella Reitsma has been asked to write a special children’s book. The title of the book is Boris X. The cat husband of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, for children from the age of eight. Cat Tsar Boris gives a tour of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. He is the chief cat in a community of males and cats that has lived in the cellars of the Hermitage for centuries and is tasked with catching mice. Now new blood must come from outside: the cats and cats have become lazy and lazy and most of them don’t like mice. Problem. Boris, a Russian Blue, an old tomcat, has lived in the Hermitage cellars for generations and at the beginning of the book receives an applicant who has to bring new vitality to his group. To provide new vitality in his group. This Tatja is a real street cat, without manners and of very questionable origin. The novice must be explained what the Hermitage is like and which interesting rooms and objects can be seen. Such as the Throne Room of Peter the Great, the library of Tsar Nicholas II, the nineteenth-century dining room, the drawing room, the jewelry of the Scythians and the axes and other utensils of the early ‘Russians’ in Siberia. Modern art is of course also discussed. Boris does not think a Matisse and a Picasso are art, but children’s work for the visually impaired. The applicant finds it special. Because Boris cannot know everything, he is advised on the tour by his favorites: a Burmese cat, a Siberian, an Egyptian and other cats that once had an ancestor or mother in the regions from which the art objects come.
