The Case of the Greedy Goat is the seventh story in the Private Investigators Club series. If you have read the introductions to the other stories in the series, you will appreciate the fact that the young detectives like solving mysteries. The story starts with Tommy reporting that he has received an invitation for the club members to have a holiday at Mr. J's cottage in return for helping him open it for the summer. With some difficulty he leads them through the formal procedures to accept the invitation. They are driven to Chaffey's Lock and taken by boat to a remote cottage on Scott Island. While working on the task of getting the water system working, their cell phones mysteriously disappear. Mr. J suspects the Greedy Goat has eaten them. The story continues as the detectives search for their phones, assist with some difficult maintenance tasks and have a few adventures. They fear that Mr. J has flipped and try, unsuccessfully, to escape. Luckily, it all works out in the end. The stories in the Private Investigators Club series are "readers" for students of age eight or older. People of any age who are learning English as a Second Language may find them entertaining and educational. This story explains the Canadian obsession with lakes and cottages, providing insight into some of the joys and frustrations of owning a cottage. After each chapter, there is a list of definitions of those words used for the first time and a lesson that explores the situation in the chapter. Some questions are suitable discussion topics, others require using the Internet. Answers are provided so you can determine whether or not you really understand what is going on. There are many jokes or humorous situations in the story. Because some readers will not get the joke, a chapter titled "Humor Explained" identifies what the author is trying to do with the amusing sections. Anyone interested in writing in English is invited to produce another story in the series. Details are provided on the Publisher's website. The Publisher wishes to encourage students to do creative writing and will accept submissions on any topic. Periodically, an eBook of submitted stories is published so this is one way for you to become an established author.

"A Case of Identity" is one of the 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and is the third story in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. This story was the basis for the third Holmes adventure (filmed in 1921) in the silent film series starring Eille Norwood. In 2001, this was the basis for the ninth episode of the second season of the animated television series Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century. This story was adapted for the radio at least three times: starring Tom Conway and Nigel Bruce in 1948; starring John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson in 1954; and, in adapting all Holmes stories written by Conan Doyle, Clive Merrison and Michael Williams starred in a production scripted by Bert Coules. Colin Dexter, known for writing the Inspector Morse novels, wrote a short story based on this called "A Case of Mis-Identity," in which Holmes's brother Mycroft is involved in the case's deduction; in this story, Holmes's theory about the 'Hosmer Angel' character is the same, while Mycroft deduces that 'Hosmer Angel' is a fiction created by the mother and daughter to eliminate the step-father, only for Watson to reveal that 'Hosmer Angel' is actually a real person who suffered an attack due to an illness on the way to his wedding and was treated by Watson shortly before the case was officially presented to Holmes.
