Hi Donald,

you are almost there.

Your class declaration is perfect. But inside the class you are declaring a String variable "mTitle". The variable declaration must have ";" at the end.

And delete this part after mTitle

}
 ()
}

You need this for method declaration, not for a simple variable declaration. A method takes parameters inside () and the method body is separated through the curly brackets ({}).

Your code should look like this:

public class PictureBook{
  public String mTitle;
}

If you need more help, let me know.

Grigorij

public class PictureBook{ public String mTitle; }
