Henry accidentally becomes a Jekyll-Hyde monster.
23 April 2000 | by (Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

This is another in the saga of Henry Aldrich. Once again, Henry gets into trouble trying to impress a girl.

Henry is trying to impress Elyse Towers, so he becomes an intellectual. He accidentally drinks a full bottle of liquid, which Mr. Towers is using to see if he can become stronger, so he becomes a very strong boy. His personality changes, and Mr. Bradley disappears (the one whom Henry said he could kill). As Henry and Dizzy seek out answers, and Mr. Bradley, they encounter strange antics in a haunted house. Dizzy sees the side of Henry he has never seen before.

This is one of the weaker in the series - farfetched. Who can believe Henry would kill someone? There is a "monster" whom the boys have to defeat though.
