Hm, do you know Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels ?
I can recommend Maurice And His Educated Rodents, that's a really good story, imho !

What I found not bad as well was the very first Skullduggery Pleasant novel, although it was a bit too much dialog-centric for my taste, and didn't contain good descriptions of the environments.
The dialogs as such, however, were not bad, and the overall story wasn't bad, either.
