I read a book when I was younger that my grandma brought me and loved it. It was about a panda who ate liquorice and used a sudoku square to do magic. I really would like to find this book for my son
Issi Noho is a panda with magic powers. His magic results from completing the vacant square in a series of magic number squares that he inherited from his Chinese ancestors. In a magic square the numbers must come to the same total in whichever direction they are added up, horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Issi's poor arithmetic causes frequent mathematical errors, with unexpected and humorous consequences.
