Can't find any problem of my answer

I think my answer is same as the "Bummer" hint, but the answer can't be passed. Could anyone help me find the problem? Thank you!

var warning = document.getElementById("warning");
var button = document.getElementById("makeItRed");

button.addEvenListener('click', function(){})
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>Adding an Event Listener</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
        <div id="warning">
            Warning: My background should be red!
        <button id="makeItRed">Make It Red!</button>
        <script src="app.js"></script>

Hi there, Min-Chun Shih! You're doing great. You just have a tiny typo in your code. You typed button.addEvenListener instead of button.addEventListener. Note that your version is missing the "t" between the lower case "n" and the upper case "L".

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
