Python Python Basics (2015) Number Game App String length

Cld you please tell me what's wrong with my code?

Can someone give me a hand? My code is working perfectly fine in the python console or as a script but I'm stuck here. The only message is Bummer! Try again!

Thanks in advance Maciek

The challenge asks you to return the string when it's too long or short, not print it. Try this:

def just_right(s):
    if len(s) < 5:
        return "Your string is too short"
    elif len(s) > 5:
        return "Your string is too long"
    else:
        return True

oups, I'm so embarrassed... Thank you very much for help.

Best regards Maciek
