Story Summary

Pegeen is miserable slaving away at her aunt's inn but always remembers her mothers advice, to leave something on the sill at night for the little people. Her kindness is rewarded when the King of the Leprechauns devises a clever plan that ends with Pegeen's wicked aunt in the service of the leprechauns and Pegeen with the inn.
