Hi there, James Barshaw ! I received your request for assistance and from just a quick glance, it looks like you fell victim to the great typo monster. Don't worry. He gets a lot of us :smiley:

On the line where you create the button you typed:

const button = document.creatElement('button');

But you meant to type:

// note the "e" on the end of "creat"
const button = document.createElement('button');

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
