Midnite: the story of a wild colonial boy by Randolph Stow

Unfortunately, it took Randolph Stow’s death to bring this book to my attention, but I have been reading Midnite, which is the book Stow wrote for children.  It is a funny story about a rather dim young man who becomes a bushranger, with the help of his animal friends.  Khat, the Siamese cat is the brains behind the operation and has to contend with a silly cow called Dora, a bad tempered judge, and a conniving Trooper amongst other things.  This is a good story for both girls and boys around 8 to 10 years old.  Heather
