Hopefully you’ve enjoyed exploring this site and had the opportunity to experience the tales and watch how they have been portrayed in media. You’ll see how these tales have reflected our history, shaped our culture and shape it still.

Proof that myth and folklore are alive and vibrant today can be found in the many books, comics and media allusions to Chicken Little and Henny Penny. The next time you hear the phrase, “the sky is falling!” (or receive an email chain letter) it will take on a whole new meaning. And in my mind, that’s what myth is all about.

So, which tale or version is your favorite? Tell me what you think!
