    Red face Adjective before article

    Dear teachers,
    I found the following sentence in a physics textbook: "Strangeness is no more mysterious a property of particles than is charge."
    I wonder if the grammar is correct because the adjective stands before the article 'a'.
    Thanks in advance.
