Alex Nogués became a geologist to find answers and came across an as-yet undiscovered fossilized organism, which experts named Alexina papyracea, in honour of his name. His first book published by Editorial Flamboyant, There’s a hair in my soup, was awarded the Serra d’Or Prize (2019) and selected as one of the best children’s book by Fundación Cuatro Gatos (2019).
