About the Author

Daniëlle Schothorst (Soest, NL, 1971) writes and illustrates text-, picture- and comic books for beginner-level readers. She likes to tell stories in a few words. Her illustrations are made in various techniques, such as collages of fabrics and knitwear. She’s inspired by the world around her: her three sons, her dog Muppy, and her experiences as a child. Besides writing and drawing for different media, including the Dutch version of Sesame Street, Daniëlle gives lectures and workshops in schools and libraries. In her spare time, she loves to make sculptures in stone.



Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the NetGalley <> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

The brightest star,” is a simple children’s story about a Fox and a dog who finds out pretty quickly about what happens when you compliment a star. I would definitely read this story, as a bed time story to my son or daughter. I hope to see more stories from Danielle Schothorst.
