In Chapter Two, Tom makes his "punishment" of whitewashing the fence look like great fun..... an honor. In response, he convinces his friends to not only do his work for him.... but to trade for the honor.

"Well, I don't see why I oughn't to like it. Does a boy get a chance to whitewash a fence every day?"

An example of his mischievious nature can be found in Chapter Twelve when he asks Aunt Polly for pain killer and gives it to the cat.
