Benjamin | 14 comments I believe there were several books in a series that I used to check out from the library when I was young. They were probably from the 70s-80s, but I'm not sure. The protagonist was an alien (although maybe referred to as a martian or a spaceman) who travelled to different planets, maybe had a dog as a companion? Name possibly Martin or Marvin (no relation to the WB character). I remember his demeanor as being fairly pessimistic, and at one point he was caught by an antagonist. Short books, not YA.
