(PRLEAP.COM) "The Adventures of Georgette the Turtle Who Survived Hurricane Katrina," a new book by Lloyd Coleman, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

"The Adventures of Georgette the Turtle" chronicles the story of Georgette, a turtle and a survivor of Hurricane Katrina. The turtle, first introduced to us as George, had a deep connection to the Coleman family, in a way that only pets can connect and tie people together. Colorful photographs complement the story.

Though hit by the tragedy and strife following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Georgette's story, and that of her family is truly heartwarming. This story speaks to the spirit and resilience of New Orleans, its people, and even its turtles.
