The basic plot of this picture book is Larry gets a job as security guard in the Museum of Natural History. Larry is not the brightest individual and likes his new job as he looks like an airline pilot or policeman in his suit uniform. His boss instead of giving him an induction to his new workplace and telling him what goes on there each night just assigns Larry to mind the dinosaur skeletons, telling him the other guards will look after everything else. Larry soon falls asleep and when he awakens discovers the dinosaurs have all gone, except for one bone. As he goes to report the theft he discovers all the exhibits have come to life but where have the dinosaurs he is responsible for gone?
First published in 1993 this book is still just as good today as it was back then.

This is a great story for the kids -- the drawings are goofy enough not to scare and the story is one of persevering and finishing the job.
A great book for your shelves.
When the book arrived, I was pleasantly surprised that the basic premise and overall feel of the film is captured in this book. The illustrations are colorful and playful throughout. The book was written many years before the film came about but most of the main elements of the film are in there including playful dino skeletons, tricky security guards and of course the monkey.
If you enjoyed the movie then this book is a great companion piece to an outstanding family film (which is unfortunately a rare beast these days :(
