Why is my code not accepted?

My code runs in the workspace without any problems, but i can not get further, because the program doesn´t accept my solution of the task - what did I do wrong?

strlen.py
def just_right(myStr):

  if len(myStr) < 5:
    print ("Your String is too short")
  elif len(myStr) > 5:
    print ("Your String is too long")
  else:
    return True 

  just_right("finger")

:point_right: You need to return the result strings, not print them.
