Problem boy vs Henry Aldrich
4 June 2001 | by jcholguinSee all my reviews

Henry Aldrich is scout patrol leader for the town of Centerville. The plot involves Peter, a problem boy. Peter's rich father has decided that the influence of Henry, his family and the scouts will have a positive effect on his child, otherwise Peter goes to a school for problem boys. Peter loves to play practical tricks on people and the whimsical pranks prove downright dangerous at times. Peter joins the scouts and sets out to sabotage the town's chances of winning the TRI STATE REGIONAL CAMPORAL competition. Can Henry redeem Peter or will Peter derail Centerville's chances? A dangerous climactic ending answers all the questions.

An absorbing and totally heart warming tail of boys and honor. One of the best of the entries in the Henry Aldrich series.
