You must cite the specific Creative Commons license the work is under. It should be CC BY 4.0. And wherever possible do link the license citation links to the license on the Creative Commons website - https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

If you are using the PDF of the story in its entirety without ANY modification in terms of design, text or image, the attributions are provided at the end of the PDF and you don’t need to add anything.

If you are adapting the layout of the story for other platforms, textbooks, apps, assessments any other medium and choose to use the story without the attribution pages at the end, please use the attribution line from the Attribution Guidelines Document.
