Another one of the best in the series.
25 April 2000 | by vikitoriaSee all my reviews

Henry wants to graduate, and Henry wants to get in good with Mr. Bradley, the principal. So, Henry and friends decide to play cupid to soften up Mr.Bradley.

Henry, Dizzy and Phyllis go all out in trying to match up Mr. Bradley. In essence, Dizzy shines through in this one, as his idea is unique. But, Henry sort of mixes things up as usual and the antics are funny. This is a must see in the Aldrich Series, because we learn more about characters other than Henry and Dizzy.
