A hundred years ago in Western Australia there lived a boy called Midnite. He was seventeen and all alone in the world except for five animals -A rather silly cow called Dora, a tall and noble-minded horse called Red Ned, a short-tempered cockatoo called Major, and willing sheepdog called Gyp and a very wise and handsome Siamese cat called Khat.
Midnite himself, although nice, was not really very bright and it was Khat who first suggested that he might become a bushranger and call himself Captain Midnite.
His adventures - how he kept getting put in prison by his delightful but treacherous best friend, Trooper O'Grady, and how Khat and the other animals kept getting him out - are full of fun and excitment.
There was also a girl he wanted to marry, but she was rather treacherous too, not like Mrs. Chiffle who had always wanted to hide a bushranger under her bed. Even Queen Victoria was very upset by his bushranging...until he finally became a millionaire, and then of course everyone started being polite, though Midnite had no idea why.
