Bantam Press signs up second from Scott-Wright

Transworld imprint Bantam Press will publish The Sensational Toddler Sleep Plan by Alison Scott-Wright, a follow-up to the 2010 title The Sensational Baby Sleep Plan, also published by the imprint. 

The Sensational Toddler Sleep Plan has been written in response to demand from readers of the author's first book, said the publisher. The new book will help parents with children making the transition from baby to toddler and to ensure the whole family gets the sleep they need. It will tackle routines, time zones, upgrades to a bed, dietary intolerances and new siblings. It will also feature a foreword from "Made in Chelsea" star Millie Mackintosh. 

Michelle Signore, former editorial director for non-fiction at Transworld, acquired world rights directly from the author. The Sensational Toddler Sleep Plan will be published in trade paperback and e-book on the 12th August 2021.

Transworld senior commissioning editor Lizzy Goudsmit commented: "We are delighted to be publishing The Sensational Toddler Sleep Plan. Alison’s previous book is a perennial bestseller that has saved many families from sleepless nights, and this follow-up will be gratefully received by the parents of toddlers and older children who are tackling similar issues."
 
Scott-Wright promised the book would offer parents "my much sought-after advice for older babies, toddlers and young children, and will ensure peaceful and restful sleep for them and their little ones for years to come."

Mackintosh added: "Alison’s first book was my sleep bible for the first year of my daughter’s life, and I am so relieved that The Sensational Toddler Sleep Plan is now here to see us through the next few years. For all the parents who found help in The Sensational Baby Sleep Plan, this is the book that will keep you on track. And for those who haven’t read the first book and who have either been struggling with sleep for over a year or who have hit a difficult patch, this is the book that will fix things for you!"
