How can I code this better?

This is my code, is there a better way to do this:

def stringcases(input_string):

    uppercase   = input_string.upper()
    lowercase   = input_string.lower()
    titlecased  = input_string.title()

    make_list   = list(reversed(input_string))
    reverses    = "".join(make_list) 

    return uppercase, lowercase, titlecased, reverses

Hiya Herman! You can refactor this code in two lines. And here is how:

def stringcases(input_string):
    return input_string.upper(), input_string.lower(), input_string.title(), input_string[::-1]
