CSS jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Spoiler Revealer Using append()

Add Spoiler button I have know idea why my code is not working.

$(".spoiler span").hide(); $(".spoiler").append("<button> Reveal Spoiler!</button>");

It seems alright in the preview. But I can't move on. Any suggestions?

//Prevent spoilerphobes from seeing spoilers
//Solution: Hide spoilers and reveal them through user interaction

//1, Hide spoiler
$(".spoiler span").hide();
//2, Add a button
//3, When button pressed
  //3.1, Show spoiler
  //3.2, Get rid of button
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Star Wars Spoilers</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" title="no title" charset="utf-8">
    <img src="img/deathstar.png" />
    <p class="spoiler">
        <span>Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's Father! Noooooooooooo!</span>
    <script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
    <script src="js/app.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>

Hi Zaynaib

Almost good but one missing is to add buttons tags inside the reveal message.

$(".spoiler span").hide();
$(".spoiler").append("<button>Reveal Spoiler!</button>");
