Parsing Data Returned in JSON Format Code Challenge Part 3 Help

I'm having some problems here. I looked at the previous thread that was made about a year ago, and I'm still having some troubles, even after copying the code/solution. The engine reads "Compilation error!" Here's my code. what's going on?

String name = jsonData.getString("name"); String publisher = jsonData.getString("publisher"); String language = jsonData.getString("language");

JSONArray jsonBooks = jsonData.getJSONArray("books");

for(int i = 0; i < jsonBooks.length(); i++) {

JSONObject jsonBook = jsonBooks.getJSONbject(i); Log.i("CodeChallenge", jsonBook.getString("title") + ", " + jsonBook.getString("pages"));

Hi Ben,

Take a look at the line before Log.i.

JSONObject jsonBook = jsonBooks.getJSONbject(i)

There's an 'O' missing from getJSONObject(i);
