In 1925 Ogden Nash was hired in the marketing department of the Doubleday publishing house. Nash said that it was the poor quality of the manuscripts he read that led him to try to write. He preferred to scribble comic verse on pages that he crumpled and tossed across the office to the desks of coworkers. This led Nash and a friend named Joseph Alger to work together to produce a 1925 children's book, The Cricket of Carador.
