Journey into Geometries
Marta Sved
The Mathematical Association of America (1991)
ISBN 0-88385-500-3

A delightful introduction to geometry from a modern point of view.

The author combines the syle of Lewis Carroll's "Alice"
with that of Charles Dodgson's "Euclid and his Modern Rivals"

The book can be read by geometers as a light-hearted account of the subject,
but it is also suitable for the beginner.
There are copious exercises, with solutions!
