Hi friends, please read this.​

Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel. All claimed that they were the best. The most important. The most useful. The favorite.

(from the story, Quarrel of the Colors)​
I wonder if it should be as follows.​

All claimed that they were the best, the most important, the most useful and the favorite.

Thanks a lot in advance.​

    This is a kind of a literary licence. It appears to provide snippets of what the colours said. Advertisers often use this technique as well.

    You can imagine it punctuated this way too. All claimed that they were the best. 'The most important!' 'The most useful!' 'The favourite!'
