So strange. Was reading this to my little ninja for the first time tonight. The first page was blank which seemed a little odd, but then the story wasn’t quite making sense... about halfway through the story I realized that the pages made sense in reverse order. Our copy has the pages bound in reverse order. When I tried to reread the story starting from the last page to the first page and the story made sense. i’m still giving it four stars because it’s a cute story and it’s not that much of a bother to read it backwards.
