Isn't it interesting how the English language has so many descriptive synonyms. Take the word 'small'. There are so many ways to say it! Why use only one syllable when you could use four...
Try out these synonyms:
Lilliputian, diminutive, exiguous, tenuous

The young, attractive mother gazed across the room in panic as even more Lilliputian children swarmed in for her daughter's impromptu birthday party.
