Princess Puffytail, the Fairy Pirate

An ad popped up on the Chicago/Creative Gigs page on Craigslist this week:

Need immediate unpublished children's stories appealing to ages 2-6, preferably with a princess, pirate, fairy or rabbit theme. Will pay generous royalties. Must have own illustrations. Call immediately 312.XXX.XXXX

Whoever posted it probably didn't expect a response incorporating all four themes in one awe-inspiring package. Leave it to Lunchbreath.
