There is a complete collection of Aesop Fables with text and narration on the same page at:http://www.adamsmithacademy.org/etext/Aesop/Aesop_Fables.html
I'm sure your intentions were good, but I think it is wrong to take the work of an author - in this case, it looks like it is the Aesop's fables book by Joseph Jacobs - and to reproduce it online without giving the original author any credit. Every version of Aesop in English is a version that someone created - if you simply list the author as "Aesop," you are doing your audience a great disservice. There are many versions of Aesop in English, and I believe it is important to acknowledge which one you are using - both for the sake of clarity and for the sake of fairness. I have a hard time getting my students to learn how to acknowledge their sources when they see these unattributed texts on the Internet all the time.
