He later taught at the University of London. MacDonald is best known for his fantasy novels The Princess and the Goblin, Phantastes, and At the Back of the North Wind. He wrote, I write not for children, but for the child-like, whether they be five, or fifty, or seventy-five. MacDonald served as a mentor to Lewis Carroll and encouraged Carroll to submit Alice in Wonderland for publication. MacDonald also influenced many other notable authors like C.S. Lewis and J.R.R.
