Book Description

April 2002 Real-Life Reader Biography
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen did not ask to be movie stars, child actresses, or teen icons. In fact, neither of them could speak at seven months old when they were cast in their first TV show, Full House. Their mother and father hadn’t planned on TV careers for their twins, either. The TV careers came quite by accident one day when mom Jarnie was shopping with a friend, a woman whose child was pursuing a career in acting. On the way home, the woman needed to stop by the office of her child’s talent agent. When Jarnie mentioned that she had twin daughters, the agent immediately asked to see pictures. After one look, he wanted them to audition for an upcoming television series. Although Jarnie didn’t really believe the girls would be hired, she decided to go because it seemed like fun. They were hired on the spot.

This is the story of fraternal twins (no, they are not identical twins) who grew up on TV and became successful actors before they even knew what the words meant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best Nov. 13 2002
Format:Library Binding
I am a huge fan of the olsens and i own this book, but to tell you the truth, its a ripp off! yes, it is more up to date than the official biography but some information is incorrect and a lot of information was forgotten. i recommend buying it used if you really want because the price for this is a little high and if you are a hugh fan like me then i say go for it! this book can be a nice addition to your olsen book collection but if you want a good olsen book, try the sweet 16 books

5.0 out of 5 stars No Longer R They Little Kids! July 15 2002
Format:Library Binding
Well as you can see that now Mary-Kate and Ashley R now a teen. They nolonger r kids. They have grown up infront of the camera with hundreds of loyal fans watching them grow up. This book has 8 pics of them inside. It has some info that may surprise u. Its a book for any true Olsen Fan. However they are now known as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen not the Olsen Twins. They would like to be known as individuals not as 1 person, because they r different in lots of different ways. Such as Ashley is right handed while Mary-Kate is left handed. They are the most recgonizable child star actresses than anyone else. They are the most popular kid actors since Shirley Temple. Well thats what it saids in the book. Well c what u think. Its a great book for big fans of the Olsens or Mary-Kate and Ashley.
