Notes

  • I wrote Cat on Hot Bricks because of a chance meeting with an old Spanish peasant woman, when I was travelling alone by train from Spain to the south of France. During the brief hour I spent with her, I knew I must write about her....In the book she occupies only a page and a quarter at the end of one chapter, and four and a quarter in the next. Yet I wrote the whole book so that I could write about her. ('Noreen Shelley' in Walter McVitty Authors & Illustrators of Australian Children's Books (1989): 203-204
  • Other formats: Also braille.
