He calls out, but the boys, afraid of being caught sneaking out at night, become extremely quiet. Jim sits down between them but falls asleep before he is aware that they are near enough to touch. Tom cannot resist the temptation to play a trick on Jim. He hangs Jims hat in the tree, knowing that Jim will wonder how it got there. The next day, seeing his hat in the tree, Jim conjures up stories about witches and how they rode him around the world. He is proud of this and consequently the envy of all the other slaves in the neighborhood. Having sneaked out, Huck and Tom meet Joe Harper, Ben Rogers, and the other members of Toms band of robbers. Tom Sawyers gang is patterned after the pirate books, and robber books that he has read. They take a skiff down the Mississippi River for several miles to explore the cave that Tom has found earlier.
