    Mammy Yokum and the Great Dogpatch Mystery (1951). This comic features the characters of the Al Capp comic strip Li'l Abner, including Mammy and Pappy Yokum, Daisy Mae, and Moombeam McSwine. The story is a fable about prejudice, told in a light-hearted way. In the story, new neighbors have moved into the former Cornpone mansion, and Mammy Yokum wants to bring them a welcoming gift. But she sees other residents of Dogpatch running away from the new neighbors in disgust. What makes these new people so different? They have square eyes!! See how prejudice inflames the residents of Dogpatch until Mammy Yokum helps them realize that even though people are different (REALLY different if they have SQUARE eyes!), they are still people. A meaningful message told in a humorous way. NOTE: A reprint edition was published in 1956 by the Anti-Defamation League of B'Nai Brith.
