Are there episodes giving an account of the Holy Family's journey from Israel to Egypt as well as the period of our Lord's life from childhood to the age of thirty?

The account of the first 30 years of our Lord Jesus' life  is very limited. The Holy Bible mentions the Holy Family's flight from and back to Egypt. After that  there is no mention of the Lord till He appeared in the temple at the age of twelve followed by the beginning of His ministry at the age of thirty. The detailed account of the flight to Egypt, although not mentioned in the Holy Bible, is well documented in many books tracing this trip from Israel to Egypt and back a period thought to be about six years. You can read about this trip in 'Jesus in Egypt' written by Paul Perry and published by Random House or
