Have checked this code in another environment and it works as it should but Workspaces says it's wrong?

Any ideas? My code provides the correct response to the question when used in another python environment!

class Book:
    def __init__(self, author, title):
        self.author = author
        self.title = title

    def __str__ (self):
        return f'{self.author} {self.title}'

book_one = Book ("John Green", "Paper Towns")

from book import Book

class BookCase:
    def __init__(self):
       self.books = []

    def add_books(self, book):

Remember that the challenge isn't just about creating code that runs. It must also serve a specific purpose. In this case, the example shows that the response is expected to contain the author and title separated by a comma and a space.

Also, an external REPL won't tell you if you're using the formatting taught in the classes. While it's functionally allowed, a space between the function name and the open parenthesis doesn't conform to the PEP8 standard that the challenge is expecting.

Thanks for your reply! I did fix it actually - they didn't want it printed out so just removed that part and worked once I sorted the comma too.
