Story Summary

The people of Chelm need more room to build houses so they decide to push the nearby mountain further away. As the sun grows hotter they shed their jackets only to afford a jacket thief easy pickings. As the sun sets they are pleased to see how far they had pushed the mountain ... why they couldn't even see their jackets anymore.
