| Henry becomes editor of school newspaper and gets arrested
This is one of the better Henry Aldrich's in the series. Henry is selected as Editor and everything happens from this point.

Wanting to be the best, Henry decides to change the paper - his first project is to cover a nearby fire and ditches class. Dizzy covers for him and comes up with a great excuse, as a good friend would. Unbeknownst to Henry, this fire starts a blaze of trouble when he "sensationalizes" the details. He covers a couple of more fires, then everyone thinks he is the arsonist. Henry gets arrested and the best part comes when his friend Dizzy testifies at the trial. As Henry is about to plead and get sentenced (his father's idea), his friends help him escape. Now that Henry knows whom the arsonist is, he must hurry to stop the fire, before his goose gets cooked for good.

This is my personal favorite in the series - it has comedy, drama and the best characters of all the movies in it. This is a must see for everyone!
