Fun Brain Teasers

Gifted kids love opportunities for challenging, creative thinking.  I recently found BrainBashers, and it has lots of interesting puzzles and brain teasers that I thought were worth sharing.  Here's an example:

During a recent police investigation, Chief Inspector Stone was interviewing five local villains to try and identify who stole Mrs Archer's cake from the mid-summers fayre. Below is a summary of their statements:
Arnold:  it wasn't Edward
         it was Brian

Brian:   it wasn't Charlie
         it wasn't Edward

Charlie: it was Edward
         it wasn't Arnold

Derek:   it was Charlie
         it was Brian

Edward:  it was Derek
         it wasn't Arnold
It was well known that each suspect told exactly one lie. Can you determine who stole the cake?
