Milan Trenc - All books by this author
When Larry becomes a night guard at New York’s Museum of Natural History, he expects to have an easy job. But on his first night, he dozes off, then wakes up to the most amazing vanishing act in the museum’s history. The museum’s entire collection of dinosaur skeletons has disappeared! In a panic, Larry rushes from one room to the next—then dashes outside into Central Park, and next door into the planetarium. Where did the skeletons go? Who is the dinosaur thief? —And how in the world can Larry get those dinosaur bones back again? Originally published by Barron’s in 1993, this mystery-comedy for kids returns in print as a complement to the major motion picture that it has inspired. Night at the Museum, scheduled for release by Fox Studios in December ’06, promises to be one of the year’s biggest film hits for family audiences. The book features the author’s original funny, full-color illustrations on every page. (Ages 4–7)
From the Reviews:
“Barron’s, the Hauppauge [New York] publisher whose popular juvenile picture book The Night at the Museum has now been made into a Twentieth Century Fox motion picture starring Ben Stiller and Robin Williams, has now published a second juvenile title relating to the film… Night at the Museum, the Junior Novelization, is written for kids ages 8-12 by Leslie Goldman. Both this new novelization and the original 1993 book, written and illustrated by Milan Trenc and geared for very young readers, tell the fun and fanciful story of an endearing underachiever, Larry Daley, played by Ben Stiller.”
