Don't understand what I did wrong.

I've been stuck on it for so long and just don't understand what's wrong with it.

suggestinator.py
def suggest(product_idea):
    if len(product_idea)  < 3:
        raise valueError ("you need more letters")
    return product_idea + "inator"

It's just a typo (or spelling error). Instead of "valueError" (with lower-case "v") it should be "ValueError" (capital "V").

It's often those little things that are hardest to spot!
