This site offers an easy access to all the fables written by La Fontaine. It also gives a list of events, publications and other news related to the author. It can be used as a starting point when searching for pedagogical materials/authentic documents on the fables (but it does not offer any.)

This website offers a complete, searchable digital edition of la Fontaine's
fables. I recommend it for courses in French Phonetic, Intermediate/Advanced
grammar, and 17th century Literature. The edition is highly reliable.
