The point Paxman was trying to make was that stories contained emotional, moral and social elements, they're not simply ways to communicate facts. A story has a basic structure, it's not the same as scientific explanations, and that might make them uninteresting to children (of course I could be proved entirely wrong if the book succeeds!).
