You're really close! When you call (invoke) a function or method, you must put parentheses after the method name even if it takes no arguments. So instead of "kwargs.items" you need "kwargs.items()".

Also, you're doing more work than you need to. The instructions didn't ask you to handle "kwargs", so you could leave that out entirely and still pass the challenge.
