Wengenn Liao has interviewed the president, conquered Wall Street, and composed a symphony… and all during naptime.

His mother, Queenie Liao, would arrange colourful household objects on the floor to illustrate a dreamy adventure, and then place her sleeping infant in the middle of the scene.

During those afternoon session, Queenie took hundreds of photos, which she has made into a book, published in Taiwan, called Sleepy Baby, or, in English, Wengenn in Wonderland.
