Spottted: Typo

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of stumbling upon a typo in Edgar Sawtelle. Some would have gotten angry, others wouldn't have cared less, but personally, I was pretty satisfied/giddy with the whole experience. There it was, right on page 423:
"It's okay, Edgar signed. He jottted Starchild Colony on a sheet of paper and handed it to Henry."
I wanted to give HarperCollins or whomever edited the book the benefit of the doubt, so I actually looked up the word "jottted," and, aha! Just as I thought..I do not believe it exists.

Come to think of it, do any words in the English language have three T's in a row?
