The below classified ads were spotted in this week's newspaper. They all share a common feature.

What is that common feature, and who is each ad's author?

1. Crimson cloaked young female seeks protection services. Task include food courier service. Outdoor experience a plus. Inquire with grandmother.

2. For Sale: 20 mattresses. Like new, used only once. Each shares common irregularity, not discernible by most. Make offer.

3. For Sale: Two adjacent lots. Located near new brick housing. Land can be cleared of debris upon request. Will build to suit.

4. Debris removal services required. Have large amounts of vegetation that requires cut up and removal. Please call for details. Gold or specialty hybrid seeds available for trade.

5. Lost: 1 Slipper, translucent in color. Sentimental value. Last seen, yesterday before midnight. Please leave message with stepmother.


Answer

All the ads are all from fairy tale characters.

1. Grandmother (Little Red Riding Hood)
2. The Old Queen (Princess & the Pea)
3. The 3rd little pig (3 Little Pigs)
4. Jack's widowed mom (Jack and the Beanstalk)
5. Cinderella's stepmother (Cinderella)

Interesting take on classifieds. ;) The title was kind of a give away, though. I did, however, originally answer that the authors were the Grimm Brothers, but alas, I was not entirely correct.

I also thought of Grimms since the instructions said they would all have something in common, other then being ads
