Don't miss the fun in the next Phineas & Ferb book...Thrill-o-rama!Adapted by Kitty Richards
Based on the series created by Dan Povenmire & Jeff "Swampy" Marsh

Candace sat in her pink bedroom, a banana to her ear, as she pretended to call her not-so-secret crush, Jeremy Johnson. "Hello," she began, "is this the Johnson residence? I'd like to speak to Jeremy Johnson." She smiled. "This is Candace Flynn. Why am I calling, you ask?" She referred to her open notebook, which listed several reasons for calling. She chose one. "Because I have a question about our algebra assignment. Thank you, I'll hold." She frantically flipped through her notebook. Okay, okay. Let's see... opening jokes, opening jokes... "Hey-ah, Jeremy. This is Candace Flynn. So, what do you get when you cross a yak and a Martian?"

Just then, her bedroom door opened with a squeak. "Honey," said a voice, "could I interrupt for just a sec?"

"Why, Jeremy Johnson," Candace said in a teasing voice, "did you just call me honey?" Suddenly her eyes widened in surprise. She realized that her mom was standing in her doorway!

"No, Candace," answered her mother, "I just wanted to tell you I'm off to my book club. I left a phone number on the fridge in case of an emergency. And, Candace, honey?"

"Yes, Mom?" asked Candace.

"I hope you're not planning on talking to that banana all afternoon," her mom said with a smile as she headed out the door.
