kleine Leute/das kleine Volk...?

Examples/ definitions with source references
Context (from a tale): "Once upon a time, deep in a mountain, lived the smaller people."


"...is a favorite part of every smaller persons day."
Hello everybody!
I am currently doing a translation of a tale from English to German and I am having some difficulties with finding a good translation for "smaller people". I am thinking of "kleine Leute" or "das kleine Volk", but it doesn't really fit... Does someone have a better idea for a fitting translation?
Once the author is also speaking of "a smaller person" but "eine kleinere Person" in German sounds really awful! Any ideas?
Thank you very much!!!

Lola, bitte nur einmal fragen, sonst wird es unübersichtlich, sowohl beim antworten als auch für spätere Suchende.

Ja, tut mir leid, ich habe dieses Forum erst danach entdeckt und fand es dann passender, wollte den anderen Eintrag dann aber auch nicht einfach löschen, falls schon jemand am Antworten ist.
