Hey Aizah,

The parameter for your function is 'datetime_object', not just 'datetime' as referred in the body of the function. Also, no need to re-use 'datetime', as the object has been created already. Watch out for the commas on the string format as well! Challenge asked for no commas. ;)

This code below should work:

def to_string(datetime_object):
    return datetime_object.strftime('%d %B %Y')
