Advice needed: Craigslist "artist needed" ad

Perusing the art/media jobs section in the hope that something besides a tattoo artist would be wanted in my area, I ran into the following post:

artist needed (hope hull al)


I have written a book and need someone to draw some pictures . It is a fairy tale . If u are interested pls email me.



Basically, I guess, would YOU go for it?  I haven't emailed them.  Frankly if this is the way they post online I'm not sure their book would be any good, but maybe they were using a cell phone or something and I can give them the benefit of the doubt.  If I do inquire, what would you expect the author to offer to make it worth my time?  Obviously people illustrate for books all the time, but I am completely clueless as to how they get paid for that.  Should I perhaps say I am interested and then see what they have to offer, maybe come back here for advice first?

I DID try to search the archives for this; I know there have been people asking for help for commercial works forever, but the "advice for artists" tag is quite... lengthy.
