Learn to Draw Phineas and Ferb is a book that was released on August 1, 2011.
School is out for summer, and stepbrothers Phineas and Ferb decide to make each day an adventure! Their bold escapades always end up cramping the style of their teenaged sister, Candace, who makes every attempt to expose mom to what is really going on, but somehow always seems to fail. Meanwhile, the family's simple-minded pet platypus leads a double life as secret "Agent P" and faces off with the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz to save the world. Now young fans will enjoy learning to draw all of their favorite characters from this animated adventure show using an easy-to-follow step-by-step method of instruction. This beautifully illustrated, full-color 64-page book also features a brief synopsis of the show and professional tips from real Disney artists.
- The book has included a size comparison chart for the following characters: Phineas Flynn, Ferb Fletcher, Candace Flynn, Buford Van Stomm, Baljeet, Jeremy Johnson, Isabella Garcia-Shapiro, Perry the Platypus/Agent P, Linda Flynn-Fletcher, Lawrence Fletcher, Heinz Doofenshmirtz, and Vanessa Doofenshmirtz.
- It's revealed that Linda takes every adult education class offered in Danville.
- Phineas has a slight chin and doesn't wear socks with his high tops.
- Ferb is described as "an inventor extraordinaire" and that he "speaks quietly, but carries a big blowtorch".
- Ferb's head and body is said to be "shaped like a baseball bat stuck into a test tube".

- Despite this, Isabella has visable eyebrows from time to time (especially in the fourth season).
- It's revealed that Perry (as Agent P) is a master of platyjitsu, which is why he uses his tail as a "lethal weapon" against Doofenshmirtz.
