Janneke Schotveld (b. 1974) is one of the most popular writers in the Netherlands today. Nearly every Dutch child has read a book from her eight-part ‘Superjuffie’ series, about a schoolteacher who turns out to be an animal-rescuing superhero. In 2018, the film version of the first book was the most successful Dutch family movie of the previous two years. In 2017, Schotveld wrote Kattensoep, the Children’s Book Week gift, 347,000 copies of which were given away in Dutch bookshops. Her series about Botje the robot is also popular with young readers. Schotveld’s books have been translated into Albanian, Chinese, Italian, Korean, Turkish and Farsi.
