Pugslie Pericles Addams is the toughest girl in Mockingbird Heights. If anyone has anything to say about her sister Wednesday, best friend Edie, or her poor unfortunate cousin Marilyn, it has to go through Pugslie first. She collects road signs, plays linebacker on the school's football team, and enjoys playing with explosives and her pet octopus, Aristotle (not at the same time). Pug's real passion, however, is inventing. Her demonstration of her new anti-gravity ray caused quite a fuss at the Mockingbird Heights High School Science faire.
