Python Object-Oriented Python (retired) Objects What Are Objects And Classes?

Why is this error happening? (ImportError: No module named 'Monster'. )

I wrote the code exactly like Kenneth:

class Monster:
  color = "yellow"
  hit_points = 1
  weapon = "wand"

Then I typed "from monster import Monster" in the python shell, and this error keeps appearing:

ImportError: No module named 'Monster'.

and the name of your file is monster.py, right?

not really, it is objects.py

well there you go.... then you need from objects import Monster Kenneth named his file monster.py

oh, ok, what a silly error
