Hi Mr. Pinkwater,

Yesterday we were reading "The Artsy Smartsy Club" when our music teacher walked in as we met Hilangully Ryder. She started singing the song "Hill and Gully Rider." Now we're curious, is that song what inspired that character's name?

By the way, we've read all the books in this series and we love them!

Daniel replies:

The song is half of what inspired the character's name.  Maybe the art teacher will know what inspired the other half.
