"reader’s expectations to have..." does "Gaines and Feldstein occasionally worked in social issues by way of moral tales they called ‘‘preachies’’ for their lofty sentiments. The stories seldom offered easy solutions and often worked against the reader’s expectations to have a startling impact without actually being preachy." mean In spite of what they were famous for (preachies), these stories were startling without actually being preachy?

Michael is right. It is interesting to note that, although the stories were called "preachies," they achieved their effect without being "preachy."

Yes. You're right, except that the "impact of the stories" were "startling", as opposed to the "stories" per se.
