A note on superlatives

To form a superlative of an adjective we just add -st in the end:

groot → grootst
klein → kleinst
However, if an adjective ends in -isch or -st it’s better to use meest in front in order to form superlative:

fantastisch → meest fantastisch
juist → meest juist (correct → most correct)

And the irregular ones to make it look complete (together with the comparatives):
goed beter best — good
graag lieverliefst — gladly
veelmeermeest — much
weinigminderminst — few
