Book from childhood - 70's -- theme was using "oo" throughout the story

I am looking for a story from my childhood and am not sure if it was a story book or a story within a book of other stories.  The main theme was that they used  "oo" throughout the entire story.  They kept using oo words through it all.  I seem to remember a little boy (maybe an animal that was supposed to be a boy?) and he had a little round head with little round spectacles and he went walking and there was either a pipe or a manhole cover that he went down and the water made sounds like oogly oop or something.  It was my favorite little story and would love to get the chance to read it again someday. :smileyhappy: Thank you for your help.
