Austin, TX – This holiday season, give the gift of laughter with Don’t Worry, Be Ha-PEA: 101 Deliciously Clever Food Puns, a collection of quirky, family-friendly wordplay from cookbook author and social media sensation Marie Saba.

The perfect present for home cooks, foodies and anyone who doesn’t need another necktie or bottle of body spray, Don’t Worry, Be Ha-PEA features tasty visual puzzles that are as intriguing as they are appetizing.

Don’t Worry, Be Ha-PEA is divided into seven categories, letting readers test their knowledge of pop culture (think Celine Dijon and Robert Brownie, Jr.), tourist attractions (St. Peter’s Basilica), cartoon characters (Elmer Fudge) and much more.

Entertaining and light-hearted, Saba’s puns aim to inspire creative thinking, connection and laughter that will leave readers craving more.

“Don’t Worry, Be Ha-PEA reminds us all that we can find humor in the most unlikely of places — the back of the pantry or the bottom of the veggie drawer,” Saba said. “It’s just the book we need right now.”
