I am currently reading Sitepoint's Jquery book - Novice to Ninja, very enjoyable so far.

I am just a little stuck on chapter 3 on the animations part.

I am trying to animate text and I wrote this code:

<script type="text/javascript"> 

$(document).ready(function() {
$('p').animate({height: '+=40px'}, 2000, 'easeOutBounce');
Any ideas as to why doesn't respond?

I have included the library and UI in my head.
