Port City Champ

Port City Champ is an adventurous harbour seal and Port Saint John’s official mascot.

Champ and his accompanying storybook, Port City Champ, were created in 2014 by writer Hilary Paige Smith.

The story, designed for children 5-8, chronicles the adventures of our inquisitive harbour seal as he talks to people and animals living in, working at, or visiting the port city.

Illustrator Holly DeWolf brought Champ’s adventures to life and local creative agency, Duke, as well as printing company, INCOLOR, worked with Port Saint John to produce the story in book form.

Port City Champ books are $4.99 each and are available for purchase at the Butcher’s Daughter in the Saint John City Market. All proceeds benefit the Saint John Free Public Library.
