Joe Thompson You're doing great. However, what you've done here is create a method. Which is way above and beyond what they want you to do :smiley: Here's what they're looking for:

public class PictureBook {
  public String mTitle;


This is a variable that's a member of the class PictureBook. What you wrote was a method called mTitle. Hope this helps! :thumbsup:

Thank you. This is helpful!
